Selection and optimisation of silicon anodes for all-solid-state batteries


In the field of energy storage, Lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology is currently the most widespread on the market. It is widely integrated in portable electronic devices and is gaining interest in the automobile sector due to the development of electrical vehicles. However, its performance are reaching its limits. Solid-state Li-ion battery (SSB) is a very promising technology for next generation energy storage devices due to the promise of higher energy densities and its enhanced safety . SSB are expected to enable a safe use of lithium metal anodes. However, high reactivity of lithium metal with solid electrolyte lead to fast degradation of performances. Another issue is the dendrite growth during cycling . Consequently, silicon has been identified as a promising anode material alternative. Its great abundance, its reasonable working potential of 0,4V vs Li/Li+ and its high theoretical specific capacity of 3579mAh/g are its main advantages. However, due to the formation of an alloy with lithium ions up to the Li15Si4 phase, the silicon will undergo a strong volume expansion of almost 300%. Various techniques are described in the literature to limit this phenomena mainly with liquid electrolytes, such as the use of nano-sized silicon particles . Moreover, the reactivity of silicon with the solid electrolyte is little studied in all solid-state batteries. In this work, the cyclability and the reactivity of two different silicon materials with sulphide-based solid electrolyte was studied. The silicon materials studied have a different morphology: one is made of commercial micrometric silicon particles (SiMicro) (2-10µm) and the other is silicon nanowires(SiNWs) (10nm)synthesized in the laboratory by a chemical growth process
