CNT-Based MEMS Supercapacitors

Three-dimensional supercapacitors have been demonstrated using vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (CNT) arrays and electroplated nickel nanoparticles. A unique vacuum-assisted electroplating methodology was realized to uniformly deposit nickel nanoparticles on 150μm high aligned CNT arrays. The energy density was significantly enhanced by up to one order than those without nickel coating.
