How Partnerships, UCF and A Gutsy Scientist Led to Commercialization Success

A discovery in a research lab at the University of Central Florida is helping keep safe crews  in power plants, workers with industrial gases and even aerospace engineers. Intellipigment, a colorchanging adhesive tape that detects hydrogen leaks, was created thanks to the collaboration between UCF and NASA researchers in 2010. After rigorous testing, the tape […]

This UCF-Designed Tech is Amazing

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.
