Anasori Wins “Materials Today” Cover Competition

Continuing his history of success in visualization and imaging competitions, Babak Anasori’s submission to the Materials Today cover competition was selected as a winner and will be featured on the cover of a 2014 issue of the journal. Congratulations to Babak! See all of the winning entries here.

Colorized SEM image shows Nb2O5 layers coated on graphene aerogel. The graphene/Nb2O5 structure was formed in a one-step hydrothermal process. This freestanding and mechanically robust composite is used as a three-dimensional (3D) supercapacitor electrode, taking advantage of high conductivity of the graphene aerogel network and pseudocapacitive behavior of Nb2O5, which leads to a high energy density. Materials Today 2013 Cover Competition Winner. Synthesis: M. Beidaghi; SEM and Coloring: B. Anasori
