|ABSTRACT||We are now developing a manufacturing technology of multilayer thin film electrodes for all-solid high capacity batteries in order to promote the hybrid electrical vehicles.
(1) Multilayer forming technology
Forming experiments using a vacuum deposition and pulsed laser deposition of positive active materials, solid-electrolyte materials and negative active materials have been conducted. As a result, properties and production rate of formed layers have been investigated. On the bases of those experimental results, we have designed a manufacturing equipment of multilayer thin film electrodes for all-solid high capacity batteries.
(2) Interfacial properties controlling technology
Treating of the interfacial regions between positive active layer and solid-electrolyte layer and/or between negative active layer and solid-electrolyte are crucial for realizing all-solid batteries. We investigated that the strength of the interface adherence of heterogeneous thin films are improved using this treating.
(3) Film thickness controlling technology
Film thickness measuring system using quartz-crystal oscillator method has been developed. Also, we applied this system to newly developed manufacturing equipment of multilayer thin film electrodes for all-solid high capacity batteries.
(4) Performance evaluation technology for all-solid high capacity batteries
Batteries using developed multilayer thin film electrodes have been evaluated. We found that the developed multilayer thin film electrodes are able to operate as an electrochemical battery. Alternating current impedance measuring of the battery has been also conducted. We applied this measuring system to the evaluation of the multilayer thin film electrodes for all-solid high capacity batteries.
On the basis of above-mentioned activities, we have succeeded in our original goal of this R&D program.
