• 6th International Conference on Advanced Capacitors, 8-12 September 2019, Ueda, Japan -

      The ICAC2019 provides an exciting forum to discuss recent progress in advanced capacitors. The conference focusses on the following themes;
      1. Basic science, advanced technologies and application of all types of capacitors, i.e., ceramic, film, aluminum electrolytic, tantalum, electric double-layer, electrochemical redox (pseudo), asymmetric, hybrid, lithium-ion capacitors, etc.
      2. Capacitor performances for power uses such as electric vehicles and energy back-up (storage) application.
      3. Materials for advanced capacitors (e.g., carbonaceous materials, polymers, metal oxides, composites), and new concept for fabricating high performance energy and power storage devices.

    • ISEECap 2019, 6-10 May 2019, Nantes, France -

      headerISEECAP 33

      The International Symposium on Enhanced Electrochemical Capacitors, ISEECap 2019 will celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the symposium series in the beautiful city of Nantes (France), where the first event was held back in June 2009. This first edition with 110 participants triggered a series of 4 unforgettable meetings in Poznan (2011), Taormina (2013), Montpellier (2015) and Jena (2017), with nearly 200 attendees for this last meeting.
      We hope that you will make this 6th edition of ISEECap a great success. Our goal is to gather in Nantes (France) from 6-10 May 2019, the most renowned international experts together with students and non-specialist engineers and researchers who share interest in electrochemical capacitors. A broad range of topics will be covered, including:
      - Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors, carbon electrodes and mechanisms
      - Pseudocapacitive materials and related mechanisms
      - Electrolytes and interfaces
      - Characterization techniques, in-situ and operando methods
      - Modelling of phenomena and systems
      - New concepts, new devices and new fabrication processes in supercapacitors
      - Microsupercapacitors and related components
      - Fast charging battery electrodes for asymmetric and hybrid devices
      - Devices and/or systems integration and applications

      The symposium will consist in 5 days of plenary and keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations, starting on Monday 6 May at 1pm and ending on Friday 10 May at noon. The program is definitively "looking forward" oriented and it will also include a specific "Young investigators" session.

    • Thesis defense, Pierre Lannelongue - November 21st 2018 - University of Montpellier, France

Pierre Lannelongue, PhD candidate under the joint supervision of Thierry Brousse (IMN) and Frédéric Favier (ICGM), has defended his PhD at the University of Montpellier, France, on November 21st 2018. Thanks to his work on "Polycationic oxides for supercapacitors with high volumetric energy density" developed in the framework of the IVEDS project, he was awarded with the Doctorate degree of the University of Montpellier. Congrats Pierre!

  • IVEDS group meeting, 11 September 2018, Amiens, France

    The last meeting of IVEDS consortium took in Amiens during the Graduation of Master MESC students (Materials for Energy Storage & Conversion), September 11, 2018. This was the opportunity for the partners to visit the new building (RS2E hub) hosting the prototyping facilities.
