Scientists develop spray-on battery
scientists at Rice University in Houston, Texas developed a spray paint can store and provide electrical power as if it were a real battery. Thus, this battery-spray paint comes complete with the classic elements of batteries for incorporation in a liquid solution that can be applied on almost any surface layer. This then implies that most of the objects could become an electrical storage device.
The layers of this “electric painting” was done with airbrush on different surfaces, such as a ceramic bowl which became transformed into an object that stores electricity. The paint layers represent different components of a traditional battery, ie, two current collectors, an anode, a cathode and a polymer separator in between.
One limitation of this product is that to create a new battery requires a dry, oxygen-free, in addition to working with liquid electrolyte that are difficult to handle. Researchers are currently looking at how the component will allow the creation outdoors to make production more efficient and commercially viable.
Thus, they are confident that the technology may be integrated with solar energy for any energy receiving surface is independent and also has the ability to store it.battery, painting, Rechargeable, Researchers, Rice University, scientists, spray
