3-D Microfibrous Media Electrodes

Three-dimensional microfibrous media electrodes have enhanced mass and charge transport compared to traditional electrode structures, allowing electrochemical processes to be carried out at high-current densities with enhanced energy efficiency.

Microfibrous media was originally developed to provide enhanced performance for energy storage devices such as batteries, liquid-double layer capacitors, and fuel cells. The three-dimensional microfibrous-media based structure simultaneously minimizes mass- and charge-transfer resistances commonly encountered during high-current density operation of energy storage devices. This electrode structure is prepared utilizing IntraMicron's proprietary wet-lay, entrapment, and sintering processes, which provide structural stability and intimate contact between the electrochemically active phase and the charge-conducting microfibrous matrix. Depending on the specific electrochemical application, the electrode structure and its components can be tailored to provide optimal electrochemical performance.
