Oshkosh Nanotechnology builds up energy

Abstract:
Oshkosh Nanotechnology LLC plans to use ceramic nanomaterials it makes in labs at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh to help expand energy storage capacities in high-tech batteries called supercapacitors. Charles Gibson, a chemistry professor at UWO since 1992, hopes to spin the company off from the university soon to spur business development and high-tech job creation in northeast Wisconsin.

Begun in August 2008, Oshkosh Nanotechnology began to develop particles that increase the energy storage capacity of supercapacitors by four or five times. Supercapacitors are like large batteries that store and dispense electricity in products that range from cell phones to hybrid cars.
