  5. Electrochemical Micro-Capacitors Utilizing Carbon Nanostructures


    The rapid advancement of microelectronics requires equivalently sized energy storage devices to provide energy for microelectromechanical system (MEMS) devices and other technologies. By using a novel approach to fabricate carbon nanotubes (CNTs), our electrodes have a high surface area with an aerial tube density up to 1,000 times greater than typical carpet-grown CNTs. By combining these electro ...
