Supercapacitors and Ultracapacitor Structures

10/08/2012 4:46 PM

What exactly gives supercapacitors and ultracapacitors their better energy density as compared to ordinary capacitors of the same size?

I googled to find some ultracapacitors which use graphene plates and then came across electric double-layer capacitor - which has greater capacitance than the ordinary type. But I couldn't find any links that went into the STRUCTURE of them.

Would anyone have any info on that?

Using scholar.google.com to search for this type of information usually yields better results:
