Printable energy storage and powering miniaturized devices

It is absolutely important to provide small, portable, light weight power storage with high reliability for all miniaturized sensor and devices.
There has been a lot of initiative in the area of printable storage sources taken by various researchers where the intent is to find out a precision technique  to manufacture power storage sources additively with minimum possible process wastage. My talk will feature a group of such techniques that have been developed in the last few years by our team which has applications in powering small devices and systems.
