Composite Textile Yarn

CNT-Si composite yarn from a vertically aligned CNT array that can withstand the spinning process.

Research Insights

Vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (CNT) arrays were successfully spun into a yarn followed by Si-loading as active materials, with Li-storage capacity five times that of graphite anodes.

Science Impact

A highly scalable process was developed to produce a mechanically robust and electrically conductive Si-carbon nanotube composite yarn, demonstrating a multitude of materials qualities desirable for electrical energy storage.
