Abstract

The Office of Secretary of Defense is seeking advanced materials for electrochemical energy storage devices having a five to ten times improvement in performance over current Li-ion batteries. A candidate material having a theoretical advantage over current graphite anode technology is silicon, with a capacity of 4,200 mAh/g compared to
