This material, fashioned from carbon nanotubes and zinc oxide nanowires, could bring out the best in electrodes—and help advance much-needed energy storage technologies. The promising material was studied at EMSL—the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a DOE Office of Science national scientific user facility located at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. In the study, EMSL and University of Texas-El Paso scientists joined forces to improve electrode materials used in supercapacitors—or devices that deliver quick bursts of energy and are prized for their energy storage potential. The research, funded by PNNL’s Laboratory Directed Research and Development program, ultimately could benefit transportation, electronic products and grid management. The image was captured with a helium ion microscope and colorized.
