Development of Hybrid Pulse Power Device Using Semiconductor 3D-Graphitic Carbon

The rapid depletion of fossil fuels and increasing demand of portable energy-storage devices paves a new research field to store harvested energy. The development of efficient portable energy storage devices for portable electronic circuits becomes a major research interest. The batteries are suffering from cyclic stability and high safety risk-factors. The electrochemical capacitor or super-capacitor, that has the features of high surface-to-volume ratio, carbon/or metal compounds-based electrode, and solid-polymer/or ionic-liquid based electrolytes.

The carbon- and carbon-based allotropes are adequate to make super capacitors because of its high chemical stability, good electrical conductivity and abundant availability. Among the carbon allotropes, graphene is a unique material, due its excellent physicochemical properties, such as high surface-to-volume ratio, metal-like electrical conductivity, good thermal conductivity, tremendous mechanical and chemical stability etc. Therefore, the present proposal is based on 3D-graphene like a network of doped hetero atoms. Interestingly, depending on the doped atoms the graphene can behave like p-type or n-type semiconductor. Herein, both type of semi-conductors will be produced, whereas p-type semiconductor graphene will be used as cathode and n-type semiconductor will be used as anode electrode. Additionally, non-aqueous electrolytes with specific ionic liquid will be applied to construct the pouch cell, whereas expected outcome voltage is 2.8 V from every cell with outstanding power density and power deliverable capability.

Many pioneer industries in India are making huge research efforts for constructing the carbon or graphene-based super-capacitors. Through the present methodology, mass production and industrialization are targeted.
