High Performance Electrode Architectures By Laser Structuring of Silicon-Graphite Anodes and Ultra-Thick Film NMC-Type Cathode Materials

Laser structuring of battery materials such as electrodes, current collectors, and separator materials becomes more and more a versatile tool for a flexible designing of battery performance with regard to high rate capability, reduced impedance and diffusion over-potential, enhanced battery lifetime, and a tremendous improvement of electrode wetting with liquid electrolyte. Especially structuring of thick film composite electrodes with film thickness up to 300 µm is of great interest for combining high energy and high power applications. Laser ablation by using ultrafast laser radiation ensures a high aspect ratio structuring without damaging or modifying the material properties of the active material, inactive compounds, and current collector. Thermal induced material modification and laser-induced material splatter on top of the electrode surfaces have been so far a major problem by using conventional nanosecond lasers. However, in recent years high power OEM-type ultrafast laser beam sources became available for industrial production. Those lasers provide powers of several 100 W up to the kW-regime with repetition rates of several tenfold MHz, which makes high-speed parallel material processing feasible. ... mehr
