Current density dependence of peroxide formation in the Li–O2 battery and its effect on charge

We report a significant difference in the growth mechanism of Li2O2 in Li–O2 batteries for toroidal and thin-film morphologies which is dependent on the current rate that governs the electrochemical pathway.

About this collection

Research on lithium-ion batteries has become very important in the energy and environment field, stimulated by the industrial need for both a smart grid linked with solar and wind power systems, and electric vehicles. However, energy density, safety, the current cost of lithium-ion batteries, and the potentially limited supply of lithium mean current technologies may not satisfy these quickly increasing industrial needs.

How to develop safe and inexpensive post lithium-ion batteries with large energy density, to build a low carbon society based on renewable and sustainable energy, is a great challenge.

This collection, Guest Edited by Professor Haoshen Zhou, provides an overview of the latest concepts and technologies of post lithium-ion batteries.
