A porous silicon (pSi) wafer with a hierarchical, nanoporous architecture and pure single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have been combined by electrophoretic infiltration to form a unique hybrid pSi-SWNT hydrogen storage system. Synergistic effects are observed for hydrogen storage from the hierarchical nanoporous Si and pure SWNTs architecture. By combining p-Si and SWNT, a higher hydrogen storage capacity and a lower desorption temperatures are achieved, compared to their parent materials, pure p-Si and SWNT.
