LLZO

Posted by Chia-yu Chen on

LLZO has attracted significant attention due to its potential as a suitable solid-state electrolyte for lithium metal batteries. It has high Li-ion conductivity and is stable against metallic lithium. Moreover, LLZO powder can be handled and processed in air, which is one of its attractive features. The general chemical formula of garnet structure is A3B2(XO4)3, where A = La and X = Zr, Nb, Ta and B = Al, Ga, Ge, Fe. LLZO is one of the popular garnet types of inorganic solid electrolyte due to its high room temperature Li-ion conductivity. LLZO doped with Ta, Al, Ga, Nb or...

Chemical Vapor Deposition-Graphene Growth

Posted by Chia-yu Chen on

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is widely used in thin films fabrication on a heated substrate through chemical reactions. The deposition steps for CVD can be summarized into the following steps: Gas species transport to the substrate surface Gas species absorption into the surface Reaction occur and deposits products By-product and unreacted species desorbed (Sun et al. 2021) Chemical vapor deposition can better control deposition rate compared to physical vapor deposition, which can provide high quality and uniform film. Using CVD to growing 2D materials such as graphene has been a popular method since it can produce high quality graphene. MSE...

Current Collectors for Lithium-ion Batteries

Posted by Chia-yu Chen on

A typical lithium-ion battery consists of two current collectors, an anode, a cathode, a separator and electrolyte. Current collectors work as a support for electrode materials. They are also electrical conductors between electrode and external circuits. For lithium-ion battery, various current collectors are used such as Al, Cu, Ni, Ti, and stainless steel. Within the above materials, Al and Cu are the most commonly used materials as current collectors. Al is used for a cathode current collector and Cu is used as an anode current collector. Al and Cu current collectors can further be categorized into foil, meshed, foam and...
