Lithium-ion batteries: Capacity might be increased by six times

The capacity of lithium-ion batteries might be increased by six times by using anodes made of silicon instead of graphit, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB, Germany) reports. A team from the Institute of Soft Matter and Functional Materials has observed for the first time in detail how lithium ions migrate into thin films of silicon.
It was shown that extremely thin layers of silicon would be sufficient to achieve the maximal load of lithium.
