BPN837: Metal Oxide-Coated Carbonized-Silicon Nanowires as High-Performance Micro-Supercapacitor


With the rapid development of modern digital technology, micro-supercapacitors show tremendous potential to complement or replace conventional electrolytic capacitors and batteries due to their small dimension, high power density, high electrochemical efficiency and long cyclic life. In particular, porous silicon nanowires (PSiNWs) and their derivatives have attracted great attention owing to their high surface areas and ease of integration with the microfabrication methodology. In this project, we are developing a novel metal oxide-coated carbonized PSiNWs electrodes for micro-supercapacitor applications and will present our synthesis and chacterization efforts.
