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

nanoCaps has developed Supercapacitors based on interconnected crosslinked carbon nanotubes on flexible foil providing World Record specific capacitance of ~2,5 F/cm² and equivalent series resistance less than 100 mOhm/cm².

nanoCaps has developed Supercapacitors based on interconnected crosslinked carbon nanotubes on silicon grass providing specific capacitance of ~1 F/cm²

nanoCaps has designed a microfabrication process to fabricate 3D MEMS supercapacitors for both on-chip and off-chip application.
