Abstract

original image

Si–C hybrid nanofibers with a core-shell structure of Si nanoparticles confined in porous carbon nanofibers are fabricated by a single-nozzle electrospinning technique. The as-obtained Si nanoparticles/porous carbon hybrid nanofibers exhibit excellent properties in terms of cycling performance and rate capabilities for application as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries.
