Project description

The project aims at improving the energy storage efficiencyand capacity while minimizing the voltage decay of a textile-based energy storage device. The study involves characterization and analysis of yarn electrodes and electrolyte and the fabrication of an improved cell. Secondary objective is to develop a fully integrated cell that can be seamlessly incorporated in the textile structure.
