Panzer Wins Grants for Research on Ionogel Electrolytes for Electrical Energy Storage
Assistant Professor Matt Panzer
recently received two grants to pursue research on ionogel electrolytes for
electrical energy storage.
"Thin Film Supercapacitors Integrated into Uniforms and
U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center. This
project will demonstrate the viability of building flexible, lightweight
supercapacitors on fabric substrates using our ionic liquid-based solid
electrolyte materials (ionogels) for safe and reliable energy storage.
Ionogel Electrolytes for Flexible Charge Storage Applications," sponsor: NSF
Energy, Power, and Adaptive Systems Program. This work will focus on further
development and optimization of our ionogel electrolytes and investigation of
the nanostructured electrode/gel electrolyte interface in electrochemical double
