nanoCaps develops and will produce and market internationally high-density supercapacitors for use in system products that need storage of electrical energy that can be charged and supplied with high power density. An example is use as maintenance-free wireless electronics systems where supercapacitors are charged with a solar cell. Compared to batteries, they have a higher power density but lower energy density at the same time as they are maintenance-free.
The founders are Xuyuan Chen and Per Øhlckers, both with backgrounds as professors in micro and nanotechnology at USN. nanoCaps was founded in March 2021, and is based on more than 10 years of research at USN with cross-linked carbon nanofibers as electrode material. The technology is patented in 3 patents.
