Arrays of multi-segmented hybrid nanostructures of carbon
nanotube and gold nanowires have been synthesized using a
combination of chemical vapour deposition and electrodeposition
methods and we further demonstrate that ultra-high power
electrochemical double layer capacitors can be engineered using
these hybrid nanowires, resulting in very high power densities.
Electrochemical capacitors with their high power density and
long cycle life will be important players in various energy
storage devices.1,2
The performance characteristics of electro-
chemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs) are fundamentally
