Many battery electrodes contain ensembles of nanoparticles that phase-separate on (de)intercalation. In such electrodes, the fraction of actively intercalating particles directly impacts cycle life: a vanishing population concentrates the current in a small number of particles, leading to current hotspots. Reports of the active particle population in the(More)
The Marcus–Hush–Chidsey (MHC) model is well known in electro-analytical chemistry as a successful microscopic theory of outer-sphere electron transfer at metal electrodes, but it is unfamiliar and rarely used in electrochemical engineering. One reason may be the difficulty of evaluating the MHC reaction rate, which is defined as an improper integral of the(More)
The Marcus–Hush theory of electron transfer has seen increasing use as a predictive alternative to the phenomenological Butler–Volmer (BV) equation for Faradaic reactions kinetics. Here, we analyze and simplify the asymmetric Marcus–Hush (AMH) model, first proposed by Marcus and recently used by Compton's group to fit experimental data that exhibit two(More)
