Carbon nanofibers is a supermaterial. It is stronger, more elastic, and lighter than steel. It conducts heat and electricity better than metals. And it can be used to thousandfold the surface of materials. Let’s take a closer look at these tiny fellows.
Smoltek has developed the world’s thinnest discrete capacitor. You have to stack ten of them on top of each other to reach the same height as today’s industry-standard when it comes to surface-mounted capacitors. The most amazing thing about this microscopic capacitor is its performance. One square millimeter has a capacitance of a whopping 650 nanofarads (650 nF/mm2). Read on for more details.
Carbon nanofibers in hydrogen electrolysis & fuel cells Hydrogen has emerged as a key to store renewable energy and making heavy industry carbon-free. Two application areas of immediate vital importance. The core technologies that make this possible are hydrogen electrolysis and fuel cells. Electrolysis converts electricity into hydrogen, while fuel cells convert the hydrogen back to electricity.
Smoltek holds unique world patents for technologies that make material engineering on an atomic level possible. Smoltek has solutions that allow continued miniaturization and increased performance of semiconductors, contribute to carbon-free steel production and renewable energy storage, and enable mind control of robotic prostheses. This is a story of how Smoltek came to be.
