About us

A university start-up

nanoCaps was founded Spring 2021 by researchers from the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN). The technology base for the company  is the result of more than 15 years of research at USN and is covered by a portfolio of strong patents. nanoCaps has exclusive rights to all IP from this research. We are now commercialization this technology by developing a first portfolio of unique products with record high sheet capacitance, low series resistance and high energy density.

nanoCaps is co-located with University of South-Eastern Norway in the hearth of Norway’s Electronic Coast on Campus Vestfold, Horten.

 

Research achievements

  • We have developed Supercapacitors based on interconnected crosslinked carbon nanotubes on flexible foil providing World Record specific capacitance of ~2.5 Fcm-2 and equivalent series resistance less than 100 mOhm cm-2.
  • We have developed Supercapacitors based on interconnected crosslinked carbon nanotubes on silicon grass providing specific capacitance of ~1 Fcm-2
  • We have designed a microfabrication process to fabricate 3D MEMS supercapacitors for both on-chip and off-chip application.
