Back cover in Advanced Energy Materials for the combination of X-ray tomography and virtual design in battery electrodes

Lukas Zielke et. al. of the research group Porous Media introduce a new method for the expansion of 3D tomographic models for the carbon phase with virtual approaches in the June issue no. 8 of the journal Advanced Energy Materials.



Representative X-ray tomography based models of LiCoO2 electrodes usually neglect the carbon binder domain (CBD). As reported by Simon Thiele and co-workers in article number 1301617, this deficiency can be overcome by statistically modelling CBDs in the pore space of an active material X-ray reconstruction. Their influence on electrical conductivity, tortuosity, and contact area are compared. In the image, the electrodes represent conductivity calculations, while the colored clusters represent large connected CBD agglomerates.
