This series of short films from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) was produced to demonstrate the properties, and use, of a range of smart materials. Smart materials are materials that have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled fashion by external stimuli, such as stress, temperature, moisture, or pH. The collection includes videos on silicon polymer sheet, cold forming plastic (CFP), hydrochromic paint, polymorph, and smart grease.

Supercapacitors

This short film from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) is one of a series of clips which were produced to demonstrate the properties and use of a range of smart materials.

Supercapacitors can store much more electrical energy than conventional capacitors. In some cases they are used in place of...
