Supercapacitors are devices capable to store and release energy in a short time, being crucial for high power electric systems. The development of supercapacitors with higher capability to store energy is key for the advance to a sustainable electrified society. Thus, new high-performance electrode materials as well as innovative fabrication technologies need to be developed.
The research of this thesis is focused on the synthesis of composite electrodes constituted by carbon-based materials decorated with metal oxide nanostructures. The fabrication was performed through the reactive inverse matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation (RIMAPLE) technique, a single-step laser deposition technique with high potential for the synthesis of complex nanocomposites.
