Lithium-ion batteries are one of the main power sources for portable electronic devices and vehicles nowadays. However, the limitations of commercial cathode and anode materials cannot satisfy the increasing energy requirement of electronic devices. Therefore, investigating the chemistry and material changes during charge/discharge (lithiation/delithiation) is important to improve the properties of commercial LIBs. In-situ transmission X-ray microscopy has become one of the most important…

The Origin of Capacity Fade in the Li2MnO3·LiMO2 (M = Li, Ni, Co, Mn) Microsphere Positive Electrode: An Operando Neutron Diffraction and Transmission X-ray Microscopy Study.
This work reveals that while it is the reduction of lattice size of electrode phases during charge that results in cracking of the Li2MnO3·LiMO2 electrode particle, crack healing is possible in the reverse solid-solution reaction occurring during discharge, and points to the minimization of behavior leading to phase separation, such as two-phase and oxygen evolution, as a key strategy in preventing capacity fade of the electrode.
