Honeycomb structures to lift battery power

A spin-off company from a university is developing and patenting materials based on tiny honeycomb structures that are thinner than a human hair. This technology can be used to design new supercapacitors and batteries that can be charged and discharged quickly. The company, Nanotecture, is also working on improved gas sensors that can be used in automotive systems and several other applications.
