Single-electrode material streamlines functions into a tiny chip

Ruthenium oxide is used to integrate energy-storing microsupercapacitors and thin-film electronics at the transistor level.


‚ÄčThe ability to combine many functions into a single microchip is a significant advance in the quest to perfect the tiny, self-powered sensors that will expand the Internet of things. KAUST researchers have managed to combine sensing, energy-harvesting, current-rectifying and energy-storage functions into a single microchip.
