BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) February 25, 2016
FastCAP Advanced Materials, a subsidiary of FastCAP Systems, has announced that it is now selling one of the materials that enables their world record holding energy storage technologies. FastCAP’s Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanotubes (VA-CNTs) are now available for sale at http://www.fastcapsystems.com.
FastCAP has gained substantial experience developing Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) for extreme environment ultracapacitors. CNTs have the highest tensile strength of any material known to man and higher thermal conductivity than diamond. FastCAP’s CNTs are grown and delivered on a substrate, with every nanotube pointing directly off the surface. Vertical alignment of the CNTs opens many possibilities for how the material can be used. The products will be offered in the widest selection of CNT length, substrate size, and substrate material currently available from a single supplier.
“We expect this unique material to benefit multiple applications including energy storage devices, conductive compounds, high strength materials, nanoscale mechanical systems, light-weight materials, gas sensors, and electronics. FastCAP has developed a unique process for the synthesis of VA-CNTs on different substrates,” said Nicolo Brambilla, Director of Research and Development at FastCAP Systems. “We are able to control the average number of walls of these nanostructures, which make this product attractive for many different applications.”

About FastCAP Systems:
FastCAP is an innovation driven company with a straightforward vision – to make a big impact in energy. In 2010, after six years of collaborative research at MIT by FastCAP’s co-founders, FastCAP began work under a multi-million dollar grant from the DOE ARPA-E to develop its novel ultracapacitor technology for electrified drivetrain vehicles. FastCAP was honored to receive another grant in 2011 from the DOE Geothermal Technologies Program to develop a cutting edge power system for geothermal exploration. By the conclusion of its ARPA-E program in 2014, FastCAP had achieved five validated world performance records related to the power and energy density of its cells. FastCAP has gone on to achieve additional validated world records related to its high temperature ultracapacitor technology, including the highest operating temperature. These breakthrough performance characteristics have laid the foundation for FastCAP’s unique product solutions in a wide variety of applications, from vehicles to energy and space exploration.
