An etched nanoporous Ge anode in a novel metal–air energy conversion cell

Author affiliations

Abstract

We first report the successful synthesis of porous germanium with ordered hierarchical structures, via controlled etching, and show its performance as an anode in a new metal–air battery. Our experimental results demonstrate the potential use of porous germanium in a high power density Ge–air energy conversion cell, showing a stable long-term discharge profile at various current drains.
