Unlocking the Potential of Cation-Disordered Oxides for Rechargeable Lithium Batteries
“Nearly all high–energy density cathodes for rechargeable lithium batteries are well-ordered materials in which lithium and other cations occupy distinct sites. Cation-disordered materials are generally disregarded as cathodes because lithium diffusion tends to be limited by their structures.”
The Configurational Space of Rocksalt‐Type Oxides for High‐Capacity Lithium Battery Electrodes
“A unifying theory is presented to explain the lithium exchange capacity of rocksalt‐like structures with any degree of cation ordering, and how lithium percolation properties can be used as a guideline for the development of novel high‐capacity electrode materials is demonstrated.”
Electronic-Structure Origin of Cation Disorder in Transition-Metal Oxides
“Cation disorder is an important design criterion for technologically relevant transition-metal (TM) oxides, such as radiation-tolerant ceramics and Li-ion battery electrodes.”
