A research group led by #NaokiFukata, a Leader of #Nanostructured Semiconducting Materials Group at the International Center for Materials #Nanoarchitectonics (MANA), NIMS, and a research group at the Georgia Institute of Technology jointly developed an anode material for lithium (Li)-ion rechargeable batteries by forming nanoparticles made of silicon (Si)-metal composites on metal substrates. The resulting anode material had high capacity—almost twice as high as conventional materials—and a long cycle life. These results will lead to the development of higher-capacity, longer-life anode materials for Li-ion rechargeable batteries (Nano Energy, “Lithium ion battery anodes using Si-Fe based nanocomposite structures”).
