In News- A team of researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-BHU), has made significant achievements in developing nanomaterials based supercapacitors to achieve high energy density and power density of supercapacitors.
- IIT (BHU) has also developed a reduced graphene oxide (rGO) at a moderate temperature of 100°C with high capacitance performance.
- Researchers have also developed a novel green approach for the synthesis of Iron-based nanocatalyst, which can be used for large scale production of Carbon Nanotubes.
Surface-Enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS):
- Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is a technique which offers orders of magnitude increases in Raman intensity, overcoming the traditional drawback of Raman scattering – its inherent weakness.
- Researchers are working on developing novel nanostructures of carbon and metal dichalcogenides semiconductors for photodetection and Surface-Enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS).
- The automobiles can run longer distances without charging as the high energy density of supercapacitors allows constant current to move for a longer duration without recharging.
- Energy and optoelectronics devices will pave the way for the development of cost-effective and efficient devices, which can be used for energy storage application.
- Their findings make way for materials which can be used as advanced photodetectors and also be used as optical sensors for water pollution control.
- The production process is a cost-effective one, making it suitable for commercial purposes.
