On-chip microcapacitors Scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and University of California Berkeley developed microcapacitors with ultrahigh energy and power density that could be used for on-chip energy storage. The microcapacitors were made with thin films of hafnium oxide (HfO2) and zirconium oxide (ZrO2) engineered to achieve a negative capacitance effect, which increase... » read more
