Can Scalable Nanomanufacturing Unlock Energy Device Potential While Preserving Nanoscale Properties?

Rajarshi Ray

Abstract: This article delves into the realm of scalable nanomanufacturing, emphasizing its significance, ongoing research endeavors, and notable achievements. The National Science Foundation is at the forefront of advancing fundamental research in scalable nanomanufacturing (SNM), fostering innovative approaches such as scalable nanopatterning. Within this framework, various novel nanomanufacturing methods have been proposed, investigated, and demonstrated. The paper explores key SNM research domains encompassing materials, processes, and applications, elucidating scale - up methodologies through project illustrations while also addressing prevalent manufacturing challenges. Specifically, it highlights the role of nanomaterials in enhancing energy storage systems, citing the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to lithium - ion batteries, which power diverse applications from portable electronics to electric vehicles. Furthermore, it provides insights into recent advancements in employing nanomaterials for energy storage devices like supercapacitors and batteries, envisaging their potential in powering portable, flexible, and distributed electronics, as well as contributing to electric transportation and grid - scale storage systems. However, it acknowledges the challenges posed by the high reactivity and chemical instability of nanomaterials due to their extensive surface area. To surmount these limitations, the article advocates for the integration of nanoparticles with distinct functionalities into smart architectures on nano - and microscales. It underscores the imperative of advanced manufacturing techniques for seamlessly incorporating nanomaterials into functional devices. The narrative also outlines a roadmap for leveraging nanomaterials to enable future energy storage applications, encompassing scenarios like powering distributed sensor networks and facilitating the development of flexible and wearable electronics.
