25_04b/2013Lithium-Ion Batteries: Highly Conductive and Strain-Released Hybrid Multilayer Ge/Ti Nanomembranes with Enhanced Lithium-Ion-Storage Capability (Adv. Mater. 4/2013)

Chenglin Yan, Wang Xi, and co-workers report on page 539 a novel hybrid tubular structure composed of multilayer Ge and Ti nanomembranes with superior reversible capacity by a strain released method. The high conductivity, fast lithium ion diffusion and good volume tolerance of the material are evaluated by single tube devices. The proof of concept in this work paves the way for integration of microbatteries for chip-scale applications.
