Lithium-ion batteries already play an important role in providing electrical energy, and the need for advanced Li-ion cells will continue to grow. Thus, the continuous engineering improvement and material development related to the already existing Li-ion cell concept will be essential.

To increase the energy density on cell level, new materials for anodes and cathodes have to be developed. On anode-side, silicon is a promising material to partly or completely replace the commonly used graphite in SoA Li-ion cells. At full lithiation, the specific capacity of silicon and graphite are 3579 mAh/g and 372 mAh/g, respectively, so an almost one magnitude higher areal energy density on anode side might be possible. However, since silicon undergoes a huge volume change of up to 300 % during cycling, the usage of silicon as anode material is still quite a challenge.

In this work, laser structuring is used to compensate the volume change of silicon during electrochemical cycling and to reduce diffusion overpotential at elevated C-rates. The amount of material which is removed during ultrafast laser ablation has to be kept at a minimum, while the channel width still needs to be large enough to compensate the volume change. ... mehr
