Abstract

Increasing attention has been paid to rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells as environmentally friendly energy storage and conversion devices. For improving their performance, we are engaged in nano- and micro-structural electrode design, in which electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is focused as one of useful techniques to fabricate structures with well-controlled dimensions and composition. Recently, EPD has been developed to realize new battery configuration with 3D-patterned electrodes, by which both high power and high capacity are achieved in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.
