23_24/2013Electrodes: Bench-Top Fabrication of Hierarchically Structured High-Surface-Area Electrodes (Adv. Funct. Mater. 24/2013)

Hierarchically structured materials hold great potential in biosensing, energy storage, photovoltaics, and tissue engineering. On page 3030, Leyla Soleymani, Jose M. Moran-Mirabal, and co-workers present a rapid, facile, and inexpensive approach to fabricate electrodes with hierarchical features spanning from the millimeter to the nanometer scale. The image depicts the tunable topographies obtained using this method through the stress-driven crumpling of gold films.
