Graphene is a two dimensional material consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure. It is one of the strongest known materials, but also one of the thinnest. It has a high electrical conductivity along with light weight. Based on these features, there has been a high degree of research performed in the last few years on the use of these materials for future electrode manufacturing in the ultra capacitor market. Ultra capacitors, also known as Super capacitors or Electrochemical Capacitors are passive electronic devices capable of storing electrical charge and delivering it at a high rate. Because of its high power density, these devices are finding their way into many common applications from industrial, to automotive and consumer electronics. Tecate Group, being one of the leaders in the super capacitor market, provides a variety of standard and custom super capacitor cells and modules to satisfy the peak power and back-up requirements for these, and many other applications.
