Caption: The non-aligned manganese dioxide nanorods on the left were made using conventional methods. The aligned nanorods on the right were grown in Desheng (Dennis) Meng's lab at Michigan Technological University using electrophoretic deposition. Using aligned nanorods, Meng's group was able to build a superior chemical capacitor.
