The development of three-dimensional (3D) aperiodic energy storage devices is in part impeded by the lack of appropriate aperiodic templates which can withstand the thermal conditions required to deposit energy storage materials within their void space. In this talk, the feasibility of an aperiodic three-dimensional architecture for energy storage is demonstrated by constructing a tricontinuous conductor-insulator-conductor (CIC) nanocapacitor on an aperiodic nanoporous gold scaffold aided by in situ small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and atomic layer deposition (ALD) techniques. Current-voltage characteristics and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy measurements revealed that this 3D CIC outperformed its 2D counterpart by ~4x in terms of capacitance. This proof-of-concept nanocomposite will pave the way to the development of aperiodic 3D storage systems with enhanced energy and power densities .
