  • A Breakthrough in Graphene Research May lead to Next-Generation Tech

    A finding that enables graphene to better absorb light could be the key manufacturers have been waiting for to utilize the super-strong, superlight material in next-generation devices including light detectors, touchscreens, glucose testing meters and even water filtration systems. For the first time, the UCF team demonstrated more than 45 percent absorption of light in […]

  • European Commission to Fund New International Exchange Program with UCF

    The European Commission will fund a new international collaboration between UCF and Kaunas University of Technology in Kaunas, Lithuania, thanks to an exchange agreement signed recently. UCF students and faculty and staff members may now apply for financial support to visit KTU to learn, teach and network, and members of KTU may apply for support […]

Nanotech Advances Future Mobile Devices and Wearable Technology

A team of UCF scientists has developed a new process for creating flexible supercapacitors that can store more energy and be recharged more than 30,000 times without degrading. The novel method from the University of Central Florida’s NanoScience Technology Center could eventually revolutionize technology as varied as mobile phones and electric vehicles. “If they were to replace the batteries with these supercapacitors, you could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn’t need to charge it again for over a week,” said Nitin Choudhary, a postdoctoral associate who conducted much of the research. Learn more about batteries vs. supercapicitors and additional nanotech research being conducted at UCF.
