A next-generation technology, the Super-capacitor, has emerged with the potential to enable significant advances in energy storage. The fundamental phenomenon and equations for conventional capacitors and super-capacitors are same. But the improved efficacy of super-capacitors over the conventional capacitors is due to larger surface area of the electrode and thinner dielectrics.   During the fabrication of super-conducting materials five components plays a key role i.e. electrode, current collector, separator, electrolyte solution and binder. Today many researchers are actively engaged to design electrode materials to increase the efficiency of super-capacitors. Different type of materials such as polymers, carbonaceous materials and most recently transition metal oxide nanomaterials are used to fabricator electrodes. The electrolytes are generally potassium hydroxide and with advancement in technology ionic liquids are being employed. Super-capacitors are having vast applications from aeronautical, satellites electronic devices to various diagnostic devices used in veterinary medicine. Herein an attempt has been made to focus on principle of working of super-capacitors and its applications in modern veterinary diagnostic tools such as CT-Scan, Sonography and MRI.
