This paper describes a novel ultracapacitor made from carbon nano-onions. Characterization of the material was performed including measurement of the impedance spectra and cyclic voltammetry. A new ultracapacitor model composed of an LRC circuit and a constant phase element was developed along with a parameter extraction procedure. The model was validated using experimental data and simulation.
