Application of Nanofiber Fabricated by Cotton Candy Method to Electric Double-Layer Capacitor
Abstract: In recent years, application of carbon-based nano material to electrode material has been paid attention, however, due to its higher cost, it would be difficult to put it into practical use. Then, we have proposed to make nano carbon fiber with lower production cost. The purpose of our research was, to apply our nano carbon fiber to electrical double-layer capacitor electrode. We used cotton candy method to make nano fiber, and applied microwave heating for carbonization. By applying nano carbon fiber to electrical double-layer capacitor electrode, we got results that thicker electrode containing nano carbon fiber leads to lower resistance value, compared with electrode without containing nano carbon fiber. From this result, it was indicated that by containing nano carbon fiber, the electric bypass was formed in the electrode.
