This speaker will describe nanostructures that have the potential to be the next generation of supercapacitors. Using electrochemical processes and atomic layer deposition, ~10 micrometer deep pores just ~50 nanometers in diameter are formed in a substrate and coated with an insulator and metal layers. The result is what looks like densely packed “pillars”. The significance of the structures for supercapacitors will be presented.
