High-Performance Battery-Supercapacitor Hybrid Devices for Electrochemical Energy Storage

This issue is now closed for submissions.

Description

Electrochemical energy storage systems with high energy density, high power density, and a long cycling life have attracted enormous attention due to their potential applications in electric vehicles, miniaturized electronic devices, and wearable and portable electronic devices. Designs and optimizations of micro- and nanomaterials are of great importance to high-performance electrochemical energy storage systems, but these properties often fail to improve power density for batteries or energy density for supercapacitors. Therefore, a battery-supercapacitor hybrid device that consists of a battery-type electrode and a capacitive electrode would offer a way of meeting the demands of both high energy density and power density for an ideal electrochemical energy storage system. The future developing trends and challenges to create these hybrid devices will be retaining both flexibility and the desired small size requirements.

This Special Issue aims to attract the submission of high-quality original research papers and review articles that are based on the recent progresses and future prospects in the field of battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices. Research papers are encouraged to focus on the electrochemical process mechanisms occurring in battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices, and the development of improved or novel capacitive electrode materials or battery-type electrode materials for battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices. Research papers on flexible solid-state devices or microdevices for battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices are also welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Electrochemical process mechanisms occurring in battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices
  • Surface chemical modifications of carbon nanomaterials for use in hybrid devices
  • Chemical synthesis of new-type 2D nanomaterials, such as MoS2 and Mxene for applications in energy storage systems
  • Multidimensional conducting polymer hydrogels for use in battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices
  • Studies on the redox reaction mechanism of Ni, Co, Fe, and Bi-oxides/sulfides occurring in energy storage systems
  • Research on MOFs as excellent battery-type electrode materials
  • Perovskite-based battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices
  • Flexible solid-state battery-supercapacitor hybrid devices
  • Battery-supercapacitor hybrid microdevices
