Nanotechnology breakthrough - Invention of Paper battery
Imagine if a piece of paper powered your cell phone or cd player. That's the latest piece of amazing technology that researhcers at RPI, New York have come up with. The new battery, that looks like a piece of paper could one day provide a lightweight power source for electronics and other devices. The prototype square battery would be printed like a newspaper.
Dr. Shaijumon Manikoth, a reserach associate and nanotechnologist at RPI says it is still a work in progress. "We were just working on it, how to come up with an integrated device which itself is a battery and which can be rolled up and twisted and inserted in any kind of devices," said Dr. Manikoth.
The research was funded by the New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research and the National Science Foundation.
