Method for Preparing High-Energy Electrodes with Controlled Microstructures for Energy-Storage Devices
TS-052586 — A novel method for producing thick electrodes with controlled cracks to facilitate fast ionic transport and improve battery performance.
The Need Conventional electrodes for Li-ion batteries are prepared as thin layers of 70 to 100 microns to meet the power requirements of automotive applications. However, using thin electrodes compromises the energy densities of battery cells due to increasing weight and volume of inactive componen…
