Caption: By coating germanium nanowires with silicon, researchers led by a UC San Diego electrical engineer stopped nearly all surface diffusion of lithium ions into the nanowires. This work could lead to improved lithium-ion batteries through new electrode architectures with precise nano-scale designs.
