Electrochemical and Material Characterization of Laser Micro-Structured Thick Battery Electrodes

Research output: NRELPresentation


By first exploring the limitations of thick planer electrodes, advanced predictive models were prepared to identify optimal electrode patterns for improved cycling performance. Herein, the impact of electrode laser patterning will be discussed in detail. First, materials characterization techniques (SEM-EDS, XRD) were used to explore the effect ultrafast laser ablation had on the electrode materials' morphology and structure. Next, the improvements in the patterned electrodes' electrochemical cycling performances and degrees of wetting will be compared to a pristine baseline case. Finally, the correlation between experimentally obtained data and model predictions will be presented and discussed.
