Silicon (Si) has a high theoretical capacity and low working potential vs. Li/Li+
, and has been investigated as the most capable negative electrode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). However, Si undergoes significant volume changes during the Li+
alloying/ dealloying processes, leading to unstable cycle life and limiting its practical applicability..... More
