Silicon nanotubes get promising technical results, but the hype still runs ahead of the reality

In a recent issue of Nano Letters, researchers at Stanford University and Hanyang University in Korea described a novel anode material based on silicon (Si) nanotubes, which led to a lithium cobalt oxide cell that "demonstrates a 10 times higher capacity than commercially available graphite." Specif...
