The Project focuses on the direct growth of aligned carbon nano-tubes (CNT) on electrode surfaces in a roll-to-roll process (R2R). The CNT material has major potential for use in high capacity batteries (sulphur battery) as well as hybrid capacitors with high power density which have been identified as key components for next generation energy storage systems. To achieve a further substantial increase of the electrode capacity the CNT`s need to be coated by a (low) nano-scale conformal layer which will be provided by AP-ALD.Alternatively, wet chemical infiltration of Li2S or sulphur into the nano-porous structure will be developed for the battery electrode manufacturing.
