Homogeneity of lithium distribution in cylinder-type Li-ion batteries

Senyshyn, A.; Mühlbauer, M.J.; Dolotko, O.; Hofmann, M.; Ehrenberg, H.

Spatially-resolved neutron powder diffraction with a gauge volume of 2 × 2 × 20 mm$^{3}$ has been applied as an in situ method to probe the lithium concentration in the graphite anode of different Li-ion cells of 18650-type in charged state. Structural studies performed in combination with electrochemical measurements and X-ray computed tomography under real cell operating conditions unambiguously revealed non-homogeneity of the lithium distribution in the graphite anode. Deviations from a homogeneous behaviour have been found in both radial and axial directions of 18650-type cells and were discussed in the frame of cell geometry and electrical connection of electrodes, which might play a crucial role in the homogeneity of the lithium distribution in the active materials within each electrode.
