Nanofibers In Energy
Nanofibers offer diverse advantages in energy applications, including increased efficiency, improved performance, enhanced sustainability, and expanded functionality.
Their utilization holds promise for advancing energy technologies, promoting renewable energy adoption, and facilitating the transition to a more sustainable and efficient energy landscape.
Batteries & Energy Storage
Nanofibers are used in the development of more efficient solar cells. By incorporating nanofibers into the active layer of solar cells, the light absorption capacity can be enhanced. Nanofibers with high surface area and light-trapping properties allow for better absorption of sunlight, leading to improved energy conversion efficiency.
Batteries and Energy Storage
Nanofibers are utilized in the fabrication of electrodes for batteries and energy storage devices. They can serve as a scaffold or a conductive matrix for active materials, improving the electrochemical performance of batteries. Nanofibers with large surface area and porosity can enhance ion transport, increase energy storage capacity, and improve the cycling stability of batteries.
Nanofibers find applications in fuel cells, specifically in the production of electrode materials. They can be used as a support structure for catalysts, promoting their dispersion and increasing the active surface area. This allows for improved electrochemical reactions and overall performance of fuel cells.
