We report on the scalable synthesis and characterization of novel architecture three-dimensional high-capacity amorphous Silicon Nanowires (SiNWs)-based anodes, with less than a third of the thickness of common graphite anodes. The SiNWs were grown by a novel, catalyst-free chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process, on a commercial stainless steel (SS) mesh. By using our novel, low-cost CVD procedure we synthesized binder-free anodes with loadings of up to 5mgSi/cm2, that have shown stable cycle life for over 600 cycles and provided capacities of up to 6mAh/cm2, very low (
