Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute Company Limited (ASTRI) has developed a micro-nano structured Si/C composite anode design encapsulates nano-size Si aggregate into micro-size C-based conglomerate that enhances the specific capacity of the anode of Li-ion energy storage device for disposable medical capsule application.
To address the higher power and/or energy density requirement for rising disposable medical capsule applications, ASTRI has developed a high-capacity rechargeable lithium-ion energy storage technology. ASTRI's design employed micro-nano structured silicon/carbon composite which aids to nearly double the anode specific capacity (700 vs 370 mAh/g) of Li-ion energy storage device for disposable medical capsule applications.
The Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) was founded by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region in 2000 with the mission of enhancing Hong Kong's competitiveness through applied research. ASTRI’s core R&D competence in various areas is grouped under five Technology Divisions: AI and Big Data Analytics; Communications; Cybersecurity, Cryptography and Trusted Technologies; Integrated Circuits and Systems; and IoT and Sensors. It is applied across five core areas which are Smart City, Financial Technologies, Intelligent Manufacturing, Digital Health, and Application Specific Integrated Circuits.
