Researchers at Berkeley University of California reached energy storage densities as high as ~133 joules per cubic centimetre with efficiencies exceeding 75% by high-energy ion bombardment of relaxor ferroelectric thin films.
Defect-enhanced energy storage
Dielectric capacitors are vital components of electronics and power systems. The thin-film materials of which capacitors are composed are usually optimized by changing the material composition. However, Kim et al. found that postprocessing an already effective thin-film dielectric by high-energy ion bombardment further improved the material because of the introduction of specific types of defects that ultimately improved the energy storage performance. The results suggest that postprocessing may be important for developing the next generation of capacitors.
