Abstract

In this work, the nitrogen doped graphene films with hierarchical network structures have been successfully fabricated via a robust routine of adjusting the content of large- and small-sized reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets in the graphene films, where the large-sized RGO sheets act as the backbone to form the well-connected network structures and small-sized RGO sheets act as the interlayer and interpore linkers to connect the large-sized RGO sheets and large pores. A maximum capacitance of 429.7 F g −1 is obtained for the optimized RGO electrode with small-sized RGO content of 40 wt%, which is 61.9% improvement compared to the RGO electrodes with pure large-sized RGO sheets. While, the ..
