Silicon-Carbon Electrodes Snap, Swell, Don't Pop, Pacific Northwest National Laboratories Study


3/15/2012 7:35:53 AM

A study that examines a new type of silicon-carbon nanocomposite electrode reveals details of how they function and how repeated use could wear them down. The study also provides clues to why this material performs better than silicon alone. With an electrical capacity five times higher than conventional lithium battery electrodes, silicon-carbon nanocomposite electrodes could lead to longer-lasting, cheaper rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles.
