Presentation Summary

We will discuss enabling materials for energy storage devices including binderless electrodes and applications. Energy storage electrodes are often limited in their electrochemical stability and electrical performance by polymer binders used in the active material and to adhere the active material to the current collector. Capacitance and ESR suffer because there is a portion of the active material that is not actually active. Meanwhile lifetime at temperature and voltage can suffer as the binder material interacts with the internal electrochemical system of the energy storage device. Nanoramic has developed an alternate solution - a binderless electrode platform technology that effectively replaces polymer binders and primers with various forms and methods exploiting mechanical and electrical properties of Carbon Nanotubes. Results have been demonstrated for both EDLC electrodes and Li-ion Cathodes.

Dr.Cooley co-founded Nanoramic Laboratories in 2009, leading the execution of the company's first product lines and co-authoring multiple winning grant proposals. Dr. Cooley holds five (5) technical degrees from MIT including the Ph.D. from the Electrical Engineering dept. At MIT, he won both the David Adler Memorial Thesis Prize and the Morris Joseph Levin Award for his thesis work, and was a Martin Family Fellow in 2009.

Company Profile (Nanoramic Laboratories)

Nanoramic Laboratories logo
Nanoramic specializes in energy storage technology and material solutions based on nano-carbons. Nano-carbons have exceptional electrical, thermal and mechanical properties at the nano-scale level. We synthesize and incorporate nano-carbons in various materials and transfer these properties at the macroscale level. Nanoramic chooses an advanced and proprietary combination of advanced materials, creating new materials that can be made to meet the requirements of several applications.
Nanoramic's ultracapacitor division, FastCAP Ultracapacitors, is an industry leader in harsh environment energy storage, producing the only ultracapacitors capable of operating in temperatures up to 150C and under conditions of high shock and vibration.
