In this work package, we seek to produce a supercapacitor system based on intercalated layers of metal oxides with conductive carbon substrates and metallic self-assembled electrode arrays with a high degree of interdigitation. Given the current fabrication constraints, and to allow flexibility in design and optimization of the supercapacitor architectures, we will fabricate them in a separate layer during post processing before chip release. Exploiting a series of recent advances by us in producing hybrid organic-inorganic conducting architectures with embedded oxides and conducting silver electrodes will potentially yield devices with volumetric capacitances of >100 F/cm3. The use of such high power systems would allow the autonomous operation of the lablet and facilitate lablet-lablet and lablet electrolyte interactions.
