Dynamics of Electrochemical Lithiation/Delithiation of Graphene-Encapsulated Silicon Nanoparticles Studied by In-situ TEM, an article by Langli Luo, Jinsong Wu, Jiayan Luo, Jiaxing Huang & Vinayak P. Dravid, was recently published in Scientific Reports.
Scientists can now study the microstructural evolutions in miniature of lithium-ion batteries in operation at high resolution by in-situ TEM. In their recent paper published in Scientific Reports, the lithiation and delithiation of Si nanoparticles encapsulated with graphene sheets were studied at atomic resolution to reveal the synergic effects of Si and graphene.
