Mouser - Future of portable power

Mouser Electronics, a global distributor for design engineers, and celebrity engineer Grant Imahara are recruiting UCLA’s Dr Richard Kaner, a highly distinguished professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry and professor of Materials Science and Engineering, to help host an exclusive #MouserParty Q&A from 2-3 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday 17 February on Mouser’s Twitter handle.

Join the graphene gurus, Dr Kaner and postdoctoral student Maher El-Kady, at @MouserElec on Twitter for a live one-on-one Q&A. Get your questions ready as they talk about the groundbreaking technique of fabricating micro-scale, graphene-based supercapacitors – devices that will revolutionise the way we power our world. The Twitter party is part of the exciting new Empowering Innovation Together series on Portable Power and the Future Supercapacitor that kicked off earlier this year. The new series captures insights from some of the most influential people in power management and storage, including Dr Kaner and leading power technology companies Infineon and TDK.

A single, two-dimensional sheet of graphene, which has the thickness of only a single atom in the third dimension, can charge and discharge a hundred to a thousand times faster than standard batteries.

Get up to speed with the newest portable power innovations, and don’t miss the opportunity to log on to Twitter to ask your questions to Dr Kaner directly during this exclusive social media event. To join the discussion, simply go to http://twitter.com/mouserelec at 2 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday 17 February.

Start submitting questions to #MouserParty today by entering the hashtag “#MouserParty” in your question. To view all the tweets during the party, just enter the hashtag “#MouserParty” in the search box at the upper right side of the screen, and follow the various responses and discussions.

The new Portable Power and the Future Supercapacitor series, available only on Mouser.com, is part of the award-winning Empowering Innovation Together program. In addition to the Twitter party, Grant Imahara also visited Dr Kaner and postdoctoral student Maher El-Kady earlier at UCLA’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for a special Innovation Spotlight interview to see some of the lab work done around graphene and its fabrication. Go to Mouser.com to see the video interview and learn more about this supercapacitor with superconducting qualities that can run an LED lamp for over five minutes on a two-second charge.

The comprehensive series – sponsored by Platinum Program Partner Infineon Technologies and Diamond Sponsor TDK – will also include accompanying articles, blogs and other related technical content. The Power Series is the first installment for 2016, following the popular Robotics, Space, Home Automation and Driverless Cars programs launched in 2015 from Mouser Electronics.
