## Electric double-layer capacitor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Electric double-layer capacitor

Electrical double-layer capacitors (EDLC) are, together with pseudocapacitors, part of a new type of electrochemical capacitors called supercapacitors, also known as ultracapacitors. Supercapacitors do not have a conventional solid dielectric. The capacitance value of an electrochemical capacitor is determined by two storage principles: Double-layer capacitance and pseudocapacitance both contribute to the total capacitance value of a supercapacitor.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

Super capacitors have the highest available capacitance values per unit volume and the greatest electrical density of all capacitors.

#### Electrical engineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Electrical engineering has now subdivided into a wide range of subfields including electronics, digital computers, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, RF engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and microelectronics. The subject of electronic engineering is often treated as its own subfield but it intersects with all the other subfields, including the power electronics of power engineering.

## Anode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Anode

An anode is an electrode through which positive electric charge flows into a polarized electrical device. The flow of charge is an electric current. A common mnemonic is ACID for Anode Current Into Device; the key notion is a positive current flows into the device; positive charges are entering the device through the anode.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

## Circuit design - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Circuit design - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As the design process progresses the designer(s) will frequently return to the specification and alter it to take account of the progress of the design. This can involve tightening specifications that the customer has supplied, and adding tests that the circuit must pass in order to be accepted.

The pro

Tristan Dowell's insight:

The process of circuit design can cover systems ranging from complex electronic all the way down to the individual Transistors within an integrated circuit.

## Diode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Diode

In electronics, a diode is a two- terminal electronic component with asymmetric conductance; it has low (ideally zero) resistance to current in one direction, and high (ideally infinite) resistance in the other. A semiconductor diode, the most common type today, is a crystalline piece of semiconductor material with a p-n junction connected to two electrical terminals.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

An electrical component with asymetric conductance. with low resisitance to current in one direction and high resistance in the other.

## Light-emitting diode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Light-emitting diode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A light-emitting diode ( LED) is a two-lead semiconductor light source that resembles a basic pn-junction diode, except that an LED also emits light. When an LED's anode lead has a voltage that is more positive than its cathode lead by at least the LED's forward voltage drop, current flows.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

LEDs can be shown in many different colors and the wavelengths consist of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared. And are Very bright. LEDs are used in many things. Like; Cell phones, etc...

## Superconductivity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Superconductivity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Superconductivity is a phenomenon of exactly zero electrical resistance and expulsion of magnetic fields occurring in certain materials when cooled below a characteristic critical temperature. It was discovered by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes on April 8, 1911 in Leiden. Like ferromagnetism and atomic spectral lines, superconductivity is a quantum mechanical phenomenon.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

Superconductivity has exactly zero resistance. When other things such has resistance and conductivity have some sort of resistance. Every material does.

## Electric potential - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Electric potential

In classical electromagnetism, the electric potential (a scalar quantity denoted by Φ, or V and also called the electric field potential or the electrostatic potential) at a point of space is the amount of electric potential energy that a unitary point charge would have when located at that point.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

The electric potential at a point is equal to the electric potential energy measured in joules.

## Elementary charge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Elementary charge

The elementary charge, usually denoted as , is the electric charge carried by a single proton, or equivalently, the negation (opposite) of the electric charge carried by a single electron. This elementary charge is a fundamental physical constant. To avoid confusion over its sign, is sometimes called the elementary positive charge.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

Usually denoted as, is the electric charge carried by a single proton.

## Electron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Electron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The electron (symbol: ) is a subatomic particle with a negative elementary electric charge. Electrons belong to the first generation of the lepton particle family, and are generally thought to be elementary particles because they have no known components or substructure. The electron has a mass that is approximately 1/1836 that of the proton.

## Electrical conductor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Electrical conductor

In physics and electrical engineering, a conductor is an object or type of material that permits the flow of electric charges in one or more directions. For example, a wire is an electrical conductor that can carry electricity along its length. In metals such as copper or aluminum, the movable charged particles are electrons.

## Cathode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Cathode

A cathode is an electrode through which electric current flows out of a polarized electrical device. The direction of electric current is, by convention, opposite to the direction of electron flow-thus, electrons are considered to flow toward the cathode electrode while current flows away from it.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

## Wavelength - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Wavelength - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In physics, the wavelength of a sinusoidal wave is the spatial period of the wave-the distance over which the wave's shape repeats. It is usually determined by considering the distance between consecutive corresponding points of the same phase, such as crests, troughs, or zero crossings, and is a characteristic of both traveling waves and standing waves, as well as other spatial wave patterns.

Tristan Dowell's insight:

## Photon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

#### Photon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A photon is an elementary particle, the quantum of light and all other forms of electromagnetic radiation, and the force carrier for the electromagnetic force, even when static via virtual photons. The effects of this force are easily observable at both the microscopic and macroscopic level, because the photon has zero rest mass; this allows long distance interactions.
