Ni-SnO2 nanopore arrays as potassium-ion battery anodes — •Mo Sha, Huaping Zhao, and Yong Lei — Fachgebiet Angewandte Nanophysik, Institut für Physik & IMN MacroNano, Technische Universität Ilmenau, 98693 Ilmenau, Germany
Sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) represent an effective energy storage technology with potentially lower material costs than lithium-ion batteries. Here, we show the electrochemical performance of SIBs with electrode design at the nanoscale. Highly ordered three-dimensional (3D) selfsupported Ni-TiO2 nanopore arrays (NiNPA@TiO2) with highly oriented nanoporous structures are fabricated using nanoimprited AAO templating technique and applied as nanostructured anodes for SIBs applications. Their large specific surface area can ensure a high capacity, and their highly oriented and stable nanoporous structure can facilitate ion transport. The NiNPA@TiO2 nanoarrays delivered a reversible capacity of 240 mAh g-1 after 100 cycles at the current density of 50 mAh g-1 and were able to retain a capacity of 105 mAh g-1 at the current density as high as 5 A g-1. Their large active sites, high ion accessibility, fast electron transport, and excellent electrode integrity were shown as great merits to obtain the presented electrochemical performance. Not limited to the SIBs electrodes, the highly ordered 3D heterostructured nanoarrays as a promising electrode design for other electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices.
