- From Commercial Sponge Toward 3D Graphene–Silicon Networks for Superior Lithium Storage
Bin Li, Shubin Yang, Songmei Li, Bo Wang and Jianhua Liu
Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500289
3D graphene–silicon (G–Si) network is successfully achieved by employing commercial sponge as a template and graphene oxide as a building block, and subsequent magnesium thermal reduction. The unique textural features of the 3D G–Si network including porous structure, good flexibility, high electrical conductivity, and ultrathin hybrid walls lead to the superior electrochemical performances for lithium storage.

Rui Xu, Jun Lu and Khalil Amine
Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500408
The development of high-performance and durable Li-S batteries relies significantly on the mechanistic understanding of the Li-S redox reaction and cell operational limitations due to the system complexity of Li-S cells. Recent gains in fundamental understanding of the Li-S redox reaction mechanism are discussed based on the application of advanced characterization techniques.
- Thermoelectric Properties of Band Structure Engineered Topological Insulator (Bi1−xSbx)2Te3 Nanowires
Bacel Hamdou, Johannes Gooth, Tim Böhnert, August Dorn, Lewis Akinsinde, Eckhard Pippel, Robert Zierold and Kornelius Nielsch
Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500280
A vapor–liquid–solid method for the growth of single-crystalline (Bi1−xSbx)2Te3 nanowires with adjustable Bi–Sb mixing ratios is presented. Thermoelectric measurements on individual nanowires indicate a significant contribution from topological surface states to the total transport over the entire chemical composition range.
- Disorder-Induced Open-Circuit Voltage Losses in Organic Solar Cells During Photoinduced Burn-In
Thomas Heumueller, Timothy M. Burke, William R. Mateker, Isaac T. Sachs-Quintana, Koen Vandewal, Christoph J. Brabec and Michael D. McGehee
Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500111
Crystalline solar cell materials with high charge carrier density are more stable against disorder-induced open-circuit voltage (Voc) losses. Light-induced traps increase energetic disorder and cause Voc losses in amorphous materials that have low charge carrier densities. A significant change in recombination dynamics is not present after the formation of light-induced defects.
- In Operando Strain Measurement of Bicontinuous Silicon-Coated Nickel Inverse Opal Anodes for Li-Ion Batteries
Matthew P. B. Glazer, Jiung Cho, Jonathan Almer, John Okasinski, Paul V. Braun and David C. Dunand
Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500466
Lithiation-induced strains are measured in operando in a Si coated Ni inverse opal scaffold using X-ray diffraction. Maximum compressive strains and stresses on the order of 990 ± 40 με and 215 ± 9 MPa, respectively, are measured in the Ni during lithiation, which suggest that Ni and/or Si plasticity and delamination occur during cycling.
