Sulfur is a very promising cathode material for rechargeable energy storage devices. However, sulfur cathodes undergo a noticeable volume variation upon cycling, which induces mechanical stress. In spite of intensive investigation of the electrochemical behavior of the lithiated sulfur compounds, their mechanical properties are not very well understood. In(More)
A number of dithioacetate and dithiolate monoand dianions have been synthesized and characterized through Zscan measurements, with some showing significant third order nonlinear optical (NLO) characteristics. Tetraalkylphosphonium cations were utilized in tandem with the nonlinear anions in order to minimize electrostatic interactions within the salt,(More)
