Researchers of XJTU from the State Key Laboratory for Mechanical Behaviour of Materials, Xi’an Jiaotong University Suzhou Academy, and the School of Nano-Science and Nano-Engineering(Suzhou), collaborated and fabricated a multilayercarbon matrix toughened by cross-linked carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and decorated with conductive Cu agents via a controllable gelation process. This work broke thebottleneck of size effect of Si anode, and is expected to provide reference for the development and application of new generation of high-performance Si anode for Li-ion batteries.


The research result was published in ACS NanoIF=13.709), an internationally recognized journal under the title In Situ Synthesis of Multilayer Carbon Matrix Decorated with Copper Particles: Enhancing the Performance of Si as Anode forLi-Ion Batteries.
