NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center has developed a solid-state ultracapacitor with a unique combination of high capacitance and battery-like discharge characteristics. The high capacitance in a solid-state form can enable a new type of ultracapacitor, and in combination with the ability to deliver sustained power like a battery, can perhaps enable an entirely new class of energy storage devices.
