Abstract

In this paper the preparation and electrochemical characterization of silicon nanowires for using as the anode of a lithium-ion battery are reported. The nanowires were synthesized by CVD and characterized by SEM. The nanostructuredmaterialwas used as an electrode in a lithiumcell and its electrochemical properties were investigated by galvanostatic charge-discharge cycles at various charge rates. The electrode was coupledwith a LiFePO4 cathode to fabricate a lithium-ion battery and the battery performance evaluated as a function of the discharge rate and cycle number. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
