Electrochemical properties of micro-batteries with single NCM-111 secondary particles as cathode

Conference Dates

March 10-14, 2019


Although lithium ion batteries (LIB) are already used in numerous applications, e.g. as power source in portable devices, the optimization of the battery performance, such as life-time, cyclability and energy density, is of large interest for using LIBs in e.g. electrical vehicles or temporary storage systems for renewable energy sources. Typically, the performance of the cathode active material is investigated using composite electrodes. Advanced composite electrodes consist of a complex architecture with comparably large secondary particles (10 µm - 30 µm) of the active material built up from nanometer sized primary particles. Furthermore, they also contain additives influencing the electrochemical properties of the composite electrode. To avoid such influences and to further optimize the performance of the cathode’s active material a detailed understanding of the impact of the cathode architecture on the ionic and electronic transport processes is necessary.
