An energy storage electrode system is fabricated via a template method with one-dimensional nanostructures that are hexagonally patterned in a honeycomblike fashion and vertically standing nanorods made of a gold-coated carbon nanotube core and a V2O5 shell layer. The performance of this system for Li insertion and extraction shows an increased capacity along with an enhanced rate performance, which could be attributed to the aligned nanostructures having increased reaction sites, facilitated charge transport, and improved stability in the face of mechanical stress.
