Synchrotron-Based X-ray Photoelectron Microscopy of LMO/LAGP/Cu Thin-Film Solid-State Lithium Metal Batteries

MDPI have published an article by Kazemian et Al in their Batteries journal about solid-state batteries (SSB) which are an ideal option for the safe implementation of metallic Li anodes, but exhibit a series of technological drawbacks.

The abstract reads: “The present investigation focusses on a thin-film LMO (Lithium-Manganese-Oxide)/LAGP (LiAlGe Phosphate)/Copper, anodeless Lithium-metal battery and explores the morphochemical evolution of the electrode/electrolyte interfaces with synchrotron-based Scanning Photoelectron Microscopy (SPEM) of intact pristine and cycled cells.”

The patterned electrodes and electrolyte were microfabricated on Silson’s silicon nitride membranes of size 0.5 x 0.5 mm and thickness 75 nm.
