Lithium Ion Batteries: Depletion of non-renewable sources like oil has encouraged the automobile industry to explore alternative energy sources with no CO2 emissions. Li-ion batteries proved to be the best fit for such an alternative clean energy source which has already been developed by several automakers as hybrid electric vehicles. It is also currently the main power source for most of the portable electronics like cell phones, laptops and other communication devices. In our group, we are currently focussing on developing novel anode materials comprising of heterostructures and nanocomposites of Si/C/CNTs systems to achieve higher capacities, good capacity retention and high rate capability
