This is a simulation model of a automobile wheel, generated with Dominik Schillinger’s new method. Credit: TUM. (Editor’s note: Eileen and I are traveling and preparing for the International Ceramics Congress that begins this weekend, so we had to put our normal writing on hold for a little bit. In place of our usual posts, we…

To infinitesimal and beyond – an electron structure explanation of supercapacitance

By Eileen De Guire / June 24, 2011

Computational modeling of carbon supercapacitors with the effects of surface curvature included. Credit: Jingsong Huang, ORNL A fair number of recent posts have been about nanostructured porous materials (PCCMs, diamond aerogel, tunable gold). The interesting characteristics of these materials necessarily depend on the porosity: What is not there makes the material what it is. The…
