    Nanotechnology Enables Storing Energy in Copper Wire

    Scientists at the University of Central Florida have created a novel device architecture of a coaxial supercapacitor cable that functions both as electrical cable and energy storage device. Nanotechnology scientist and professor Jayan Thomas and his Ph.D. student Zenan Yu have developed a way to both transmit and store electricity in a single lightweight copper wire. Their work is the focus of the cover story of the June 30 issue of the material science journal Advanced Materials (see footnote) and Nature has published a detailed discussion about this technology in the current issue.
