Project description

In this research, textile capacitors/batteries are developed using either silver coated yarns or pure stainless steel filaments as electrodes. PEDOT:PSS is used as a solid electrolyte. The remaining part of this research aims at studying the fabricated device to improve on its performance and at meausuring its behavior after washing.
