Enable IPC Corp.,
a leading company for turning technologies into products and successfully bringing
them to market, today announced that Kevin Leonard, CTO of the company’s
SolRayo LLC subsidiary, will be one of the featured presenters at the 214th
Electrochemical Society Conference (ECS) this week.
Mr. Leonard will present his speech, entitled “Novel Nanoporous Insulating
Oxide Materials for
Electrochemical Capacitors,” on Wednesday, Oct. 15. The presentation will
discuss the technical principles
behind Enable IPC’s breakthrough enhanced ultracapacitor technology, including
details on how it works
and why it improves the performance of some electrodes by as much as 400 percent.
Mr. Leonard has extensive experience in the nanotech/ultracapacitor field,
and is a co-founder of SolRayo.
He played a critical role in developing Enable IPC’s patent-pending ultracapacitor
technology and helped
guide the company to a recent $250,000 grant win by the State of Wisconsin.
He is actively involved in
developing new nanoparticle-based ultracapacitors for potential uses in various
industrial, consumer and
Enable IPC’s ultracapacitor technology combines nanoparticles with common
carbon sheets for a low cost,
easy-to-implement technology that improves the performance of ultracapacitors
so they can function as
clean energy storage devices. The enhanced ultracapacitors are simpler, cheaper
and longer lasting than
some conventional batteries, but perform just as well in many applications.
The 214th Electrochemical Society Conference takes place in Honolulu, Hawaii
from Oct. 12-17, 2008. The
conference is part of the ECS’ biannual meetings, and provides a forum
for exchanging information on the
latest scientific and technical developments in the fields of electrochemical
and solid-state science and
technology. ECS’s meetings bring together scientists, engineers and researchers
from academia, industry
and government laboratories to share results and discuss issues on related topics
through a variety of
