Study Results from Sakarya University in the Area of Silicon Reported (Cyclic Performance Study of Silicon/Carbon Nanotube Composite Anodes Using Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Fresh data on Silicon are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Sakarya, Turkey, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Silicon based carbon nanotube composites were produced and their galvanostatic cycling properties analyzed depended on the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Composite anodes were produced via vacuum filtration and DC magnetron sputtering technique."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Sakarya University, "Carbon nanotube papers were produced with vacuum filtration as substrate for silicon deposition and silicon was sputtered onto carbon nanotube papers via DC magnetron sputtering. Scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis were conducted for structural analysis of anodes. CR2016 coin cells were assembled for electrochemical tests. Electrochemical performance of anodes was tested via galvanostatic charge/discharge (100 cycles) analysis."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy was carried out at every 25 charge/discharge cycle to determine relation between cyclic performance and electrochemical impedance of cells."
