Building on ideas first laid out by the Nanomaterials Group two years ago, a group of freshman engineering students assembled the first prototype of the electrochemical flow capacitor.

The students, from the departments of Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical and Biological Engineering, worked under the mentorship of NMG PhD student Kelsey Hatzell, whose work primarily focuses on the EFC. The students showed their prototype storing energy collected from a solar cell, as well as the EFC powering an LED.

The students created a video documenting their project. Watch it below or click here to view it on YouTube.

 


 

Congratulations to the team for their hard work and success!
