In this thesis, Tin oxide (SnO2) nanowires are synthesized via VLS (Vapor-liquid-solid)
method on FTO substrates. The effect of Sb doping, Au seed layer thickness and
substrate materials on morphology of a nanowire array has been systematically
Also, the electrical and optical properties of a nanowire array such as resistance,
transmission and absorption are characterized. Moreover, manganese oxide and
nickel oxide are coated on top of SnO2 nanowires and their electrochemical
properties are analyzed. Our results show that Mn-Ni codeposited Sb-doped SnO2
nanowires are promising material for high performance supercapacitors.
