Title: Evolution of the lithium morphology from cycling of thin film solid state batteries

Abstract

Thin film batteries with a Lipon electrolyte and Li metal anode can be cycled thousands of times. During this time there is a gradual redistribution of the lithium at the top surface; the morphology that develops depends on a number of factors but is largely driven by dewetting. In this work, this redistribution is characterized as functions of the cycle number, duty cycle, cathode composition, and protective coating over the lithium. Observations of wrinkled and pitted surfaces are discussed considering the effects of defects and diffusion in the lithium and influences of film stresses and surface energy. In conclusion, similar processes may impact solid state lithium batteries with higher energy per active area.
