Flexible, Aligned carbon nanotube/ polymer electrodes for a lithium-ion battery

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) present a new material for the

    construction of electrodes. The large-scale production of

    aligned carbon nanotube (ACNT) arrays was first reported

    by Dai and co-workers,1

    providing an opportunity to develop

    highly ordered, high-surface-area electrodes with excellent

    electronic and mechanical properties. Although the latter two

    attributes are realized in the vertical direction, there is a need

    to develop simple methods of making ACNT composites that

    are mechanically robust and with sufficient conductivity in

    the horizontal direction. Such interconnects would give rise

    to a practically useful electrode structure for use in applications such as energy storage,2

    actuators,3

    and sensors.4
