Batteries which use nanowires
to increase the surface area of its electrodes are known as Nanowire batteries. Nanowires are structures that have a thickness of constrained or unconstrained length. Some (Silicon, Germanium and Transition metal oxides) are the variations of the lithium-ion battery . These nanowires replace the traditional graphite anode and could potentially improve battery performance. Nanowire battery is a Lithium ion battery, which consists of a stainless steel anode and covered by silicon wires. These devices last for longer duration than the conventional batteries that have applications in laptops, cellphones and other electronic devices.
The global market can be segmented based on applications into energy generations, consumer products, remote controllers and others.
