Abstract

A new class of super polarization membrane is described. In terms of fundamental properties, the membrane exhibits the largest polarization, reasonable polarization retention, and high ionic conductivity. In practice, the membrane is immediately applicable in energy storage, and the associated technology is not only inexpensive, but also massive scalable and environment-friendly. The energy-storage membrane has wide applications in the energy efficiency and management of solar panels, wind turbines, and hybrid/electric vehicles.
