Title: In situ high-energy synchrotron X-ray diffraction studies and first principles modeling of α-MnO 2 electrodes in Li–O 2 and Li-ion coin cells

Abstract

In situsynchrotron diffraction and first principles modeling shows structural changes in α-MnO 2during cycling in Li–O 2battery cells, as lithium and oxygen are incorporated into and removed from tunnels in the structure.
