The rise in the popularity of emerging industries like electric vehicles and off-grid storage has prompted a steady arms race in the development of electrochemical storage nanotechnology.

In this paper, we look at the effects on charge capacity of one of the core components of Lithium-Ion Batteries, the anode, when a graphite anode is modified with a thin film of silicon.

The results of the aforementioned studies are recorded and the cell discharge capacity vs the modification-less anode is recorded and presented in this poster.
