Growing silicon directly off current collectors (by CVD) offers a rich library of strategies to solve traditional problems associated with silicon anodes. However, it also raises a few new ones. Find out more in my latest podcast.

Silicon active material (340) is grown onto nickel silicide template (310) and may be coated by carbon or lithium conducting shell (330). The silicide template is hard rooted onto the copper current collector (320) for enhanced electron conductivity.
