    Abstract

    Nanostructured thin films of vanadium oxides were deposited using electric field assisted chemical vapour deposition. The films were characterised using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. It was found that the films had open and porous morphologies with extremely small (5 nm) surface features. The films were made into supercapacitor cells and tested using cyclic voltammetry. It was found that stable asymptotic values specific capacitance values as high as 3700 μF cm-2 could be obtained with good cycling behaviour. Electrodes synthesized in this way show promise for applications in fields such as supercapacitors. This journal is © the Partner Organisations 2014.
