Chemical Trends in the Lattice Thermal Conductivity of Li(Ni, Mn, Co)O2 (NMC) Battery Cathodes

While the transport of ions and electrons in conventional Li-ion battery cathodematerials is well understood, our knowledge of the phonon (heat) transport is still in itsinfancy. We present a

Thermal transport in lithium-ion battery: A micro perspective for thermal management

In recent years, lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries have served as significant power sources in portable electronic devices and electric vehicles because of their high energy density and rate capability.

Investigation of the Effective Thermal Conductivity of Cell Stacks of Li‐Ion Batteries

Knowledge of the thermal transport properties of the individual battery components and their combination is required for the design of thermally optimized lithium‐ion batteries. Based on this, the

How Hydrodynamic Phonon Transport Determines the Convergence of Thermal Conductivity in Two-Dimensional Materials

The phonon Boltzmann transport equation combined with first-principles calculation has achieved great success in exploring the lattice thermal conductivity (κ) of various materials. However, the



Approaching the capacity limit of lithium cobalt oxide in lithium ion batteries via lanthanum and aluminium doping

Lithium cobalt oxides (LiCoO2) possess a high theoretical specific capacity of 274 mAh g–1. However, cycling LiCoO2-based batteries to voltages greater than 4.35 V versus Li/Li+ causes significant

Highly Anisotropic Thermal Transport in LiCoO2.

LiCoO2 is the prototypical cathode in lithium-ion batteries. Its crystal structure consists of Li+ and CoO2- layers that alternate along the hexagonal <0001> axis. It is well established that the

Electrochemically tunable thermal conductivity of lithium cobalt oxide.

Using time-domain thermoreflectance, the thermal conductivity and elastic properties of a sputter deposited LiCoO2 film, a common lithium-ion cathode material, are measured as a function of the degree of lithiation to report the dependence of the Thermal conductivity on lithiation appears correlated with the lithiation-dependent phase behaviour.

Trace doping of multiple elements enables stable battery cycling of LiCoO2 at 4.6 V

LiCoO2 is a dominant cathode material for lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries due to its high volumetric energy density, which could potentially be further improved by charging to high voltages. However,

Among lithium transition metal oxides used as intercalation electrodes for rechargeable lithium batteries, LiCoO{sub 2} is considered to be the most stable in the {alpha}-NaFeO{sub 2} structure type.

Two-channel model for ultralow thermal conductivity of crystalline Tl3VSe4

This work identifies a simple crystal, Tl3VSe4, with a calculated phonon κ one-half that of the measured κ, and suggests that a two-channel model is necessary for crystals with ultralow κ.
