Rietveld analysis of battery material using a Mo source

AppNote XRD1080: Rietveld analysis of battery material using a Mo source


Olivine-type lithium compound, known as a positive electrode material for lithium-ion secondary batteries, has an advantage in thermal and chemical stability during charging and discharging processes, as well as in economic efficiency, since it does not contain expensive transition metals. Therefore olivine-type lithium compound is promising as a positive electrode material for next-generation batteries. Currently, other higher-performance materials are being developed by dissolving different metals into the solid solution and substituting them to enhance their electric properties.
