Tin Nanoneedles: A Cost Effective, Industry-Scalable Anode Technology for Lithium-ion BatteriesTin is an attractive anode technology for next generation lithium-ion batteries because of its higher theoretical capacity than graphite.
However, there is a large volume change during lithiation/delithiation cycling, which can degrade cell performance.
To accommodate the volume change we synthesize the tin in the form of 1-D nanostructures using electroplating.
Cell performance shows that these nanostructured tin anodes deliver capacities close to the theoretical value and have cycling stability exceeding most non-carbon-based anodes. Electroplating is a cost effective and industry scalable process to directly form tin nanostructures for lithium-ion battery anodes.
Because of the mild synthesis conditions a wide range of substrates, including flexible and wearable materials, can be coated. This presentation will be given by M. Grant Norton, PhD of Washginton State Univeristy at Next Generation Batteries 2013.If interesting, please go to Event
