Professor Kaner from UCLA demonstrates how to build a high-performance graphene-based supercapacitor with a DVD writer [PDF!]. The process uses a DVD writer to burn a pattern onto a plastic film coated with graphene. The resulting supercapacitor is flexible, and capable of storing enough energy to drive an LED for a few minutes.
There has been a video going around from researchers at UCLA about building super capacitors using a Lightscribe DVD writer and graphite oxide (GO), which I think looks really amazing and am interested in reproducing. I figured others might be as well so here is what I know so far.
Nabit started reverse engineering the process and left his research in the forum. Anyone interested in a home brew a supercapacitor?
