Title: Material/element-dependent fluorescence-yield modes on soft X-ray absorption spectroscopy of cathode materials for Li-ion batteries

Abstract

Here, we evaluate the utilities of fluorescence-yield (FY) modes in soft X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) of several cathodematerials for Li-ion batteries. In the case of total-FY (TFY) XAS for LiNi 0.5Mn 1.5O 4, the line shape of the Mn L 3-edge XAS was largely distorted by the self-absorption and saturation effects, while the distortions were less pronounced at the Ni L 3 edge. The distortions were suppressed for the inverse-partial-FY (IPFY) spectra. We found that, in the cathodematerials, the IPFY XAS is highly effective for the Cr, Mn, and Fe L edges and the TFY and PFY modes are useful enough for the Ni L edge which is far from the O K edge.
