High voltage electrophoretic deposition (HVEPD) has been used to obtain forests of aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on long strips of flexible, conductive substrates. Successful design and integration of a continuous HVEPD setup has enabled scalable fabrication of electrodes for electrochemical energy storage. The mechanism of continuous HVEPD has been investigated to ensure appropriate alignment. Well-aligned forests of MWCNTs were obtained using a conductive holding layer which helped reduce internal resistance and enhance the electrochemical performance of the electrodes. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
