Silicon nanowire arrays have been utilized in a variety of applications, including Li-ion batteries, solar cells, optical coatings, microfluidics, biosensing and photocatalysis. These materials are especially well-suited for applications that require large surface areas and could take advantage of the broader silicon know-how.
