NANO HYBRID MATERIALS FOR ENERGY STORAGE
For the past few decades, energy production from renewable resources is the main topic of concern. Beside this, its storage and production (when required) is drawing the attention of many researchers. Hence, supercapacitor will be considered as the promising energy storage device, in the forth coming years which would bridge the gap between conventional capacitor and batteries. The excellent cyclic stability with 95.7% retention, phase angle 780 close to the ideal phase angle 900 and t0 values from Bode plot and Nyquist plot indicates LTO (specific capacitance 71 F/g) as a future supercapacitor.
