3D carbon microelectrodes for energy applications

Carbon microelectrodes are of interest for energy storage in microbatteries or microsupercapacitors and energy harvesting in biophotovoltaic fuel cells. A relatively new approach to fabricate carbon microelectrodes is pyrolysis of microfabricated polymer structures. In the pyrolysis process, a polymer template is introduced in inert atmosphere and heated to high temperatures (> 900°C) which results in carbonization of the polymer. The resulting carbon structure is electrically conductive. The advantage of this approach is that 3D polymer microstructures can be prepared by photolithography and transformed into 3D carbon microelectrodes with tailored geometry and properties.

The goal of this project is to develop new methods for fabrication of 3D pyrolytic carbon electrodes. This activity will be performed in the cleanroom facilities of DTU Danchip (photolithography) and our laboratories (3D printing). The structural and electrochemical properties will be analyzed using SEM, XPS, Raman spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
