Disruptive Silicon Anode Technology for Next-Generation Lithium-Ion Batteries

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has pioneered novel processing technology for silicon nanoparticles (Si NPs) synthesized from plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) that will disrupt current lithium-ion battery technology. This revolutionary Si NP-based anode leverages a molecular coating applied to PECVD Si NPs that transforms them into homogeneous colloids suitable for conventional slurry formulation and electrode deposition resulting in delivered capacities of >2000 mAh/g (total electrode mass) at >90 wt% Si content anodes.
