An attractive approach is demonstrated to realize large areal capacitance electrodes made of ruthenium oxide onto highly porous gold current collectors. The hybrid structure exhibits a capacitance in excess of 3 F cm-2 and an areal energy density for all-solid-state microsupercapacitors that is comparable to those of microbatteries.
