Quantitative cross-sectional mapping of nanomechanical properties of composite films for lithium ion batteries using bimodal mode atomic force microscopy
Nanoscale Young's modulus mapping of the cross-section of electrode composite films used in lithium ion batteries was carried out using bimodal atomic force microscopy. Clear difference in Young's modulus was observed between the particles of active materials and matrix of conductive additives/binders in the composites of LiCoO2-based positive and graphite-based negative electrodes. Interestingly, there were a few particles showing significantly reduced Young's modulus in the 100% state-of-charge positive electrode although such particles were not present in the pristine electrode.
