Self-Standing Mesoporous Silicon Film can Power Lithium-Ion Batteries

Self-Standing Mesoporous Silicon Film can Power Lithium-Ion Batteries

Battery researchers have developed a self-standing mesoporous silicon (Si) film anode for lithium-ion batteries. This film electrode does not need carbon additives and binders to connect particles like typical slurry-based electrodes, but it still exhibits excellent battery performance. The success of this electrode design provides an efficient strategy for achieving high energy density lithium-ion batteries.
