Porous silicon nanowires have been well studied for various applications; however, there are only very limited reports on porous silicon nanowires used for energy storage. Here, we report both experimental and theoretical study of porous doped silicon nanowires synthesized by direct etching of boron-doped silicon wafers. When using alginate as binder, porous silicon nanowires exhibited superior electrochemical performance and long cycle life as anode material in lithium ion battery. Even after 250 cycles, capacity remains stable above 2000, 1600 and 1100 mAh/g at current rates of 2 A/g, 4 A/g and18 A/g, respectively, demonstrating high structure stability due to the high porosity and electron conductivity of the porous silicon nanowires. A mathematic model coupling the lithium ion diffusion and the strain induced by lithium intercalation was employed to study the effect of porosity and pore size on the structure stability. Simulation shows silicon with high porosity and large pore size help to stabilize the structure during charge/discharge cycles.
