Miniaturization of microelectronics has created an increasing need of miniaturized integrated power sources, which are small but provide enough energy. 3D microbatteries is a possible solution— creating a suitable three-dimensional internal battery architecture allows decreasing the battery size hundreds of times. Our research is focused on fabrication of 3D microbatteries using printing technology, and the development of novel battery materials which enable high capacitance at small external battery dimensions.
We are a part of highly interdisciplinary Intelligent Materials and Systems Lab headed by prof Alvo Aabloo.
- Printed soft microactuators
- Tuning properties of nanoporous carbon materials
- Mathematical modelling of 3D microbatteries
