Si nanoparticle-decorated Si nanowire networks for Li-ion battery anodes

Author affiliations

Abstract

We designed and fabricated binder-free, 3D porous silicon nanostructures for Li-ion battery anodes, where Si nanoparticles electrically contact current collectors via vertically grown silicon nanowires. When compared with a Si nanowire anode, the areal capacity was increased by a factor of 4 without having to use long, high temperature steps under vacuum that vapour–liquid–solid Si nanowire growth entails.
