How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
High loading (>1.6 mg cm−2) of Si nanowires (NWs) is achieved by seeding the growth from a dense array of Cu15Si4 NWs using tin seeds. A one‐pot synthetic approach involves the direct growth of CuSi NWs on Cu foil that acts as a textured surface for Sn adhesion and Si NW nucleation. The high achievable Si NW loading is enabled by the high surface a...
