Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed an improved thin film battery prototype to respond to the need for more power-efficient electronic devices in a variety of applications. Among thin film batteries, it has the world’s highest energy storage density. Its materials are environmentally friendly and safe for disposal as well as in the event of damage. The batteries have an extremely low recharging threshold enabling a multiplicity of energy scavenging techniques that can indefinitely recharge the battery wirelessly, including radio frequency, vibration, and solar sources. Finally, because of its specific electrochemistry, the battery has an extremely long life cycle. These innovations set the battery apart from other available thin film batteries. A patent application is pending.
