Outline • Thermal conductivity and measurement by timedomain thermoreflectance (TDTR) • Big picture goals of our work: – Understand and push the limits of thermal conductivity in various classes of materials – enhance thermal function in materials, e.g., abrupt changes in conductivity, actively controlled conduction, more efficient heat pumping. • Electrochemical modulation of the thermal conductivity of LixCoO2 – Materials science and phenomenology – Materials physics
Thermal conductivities of dense solids span a range of 40,000 at room temperature

Electrochemical modulation of thermal conductivity of LixCoO2 • Polycrystalline thin film prepared by sputter deposition and annealing • Real-time measurement by TDTR and picosecond acoustics.

Sputter deposit LixCo2 and anneal in air
500 nm LixCoO2; 0.3C rate • TDTR works best with Al transducer. — Limit annealing temperature of samples for in-situ studies to 500°C
Characterize microstructure by electron microscopy • After annealing at 500C in air • Nanocrystalline, dense microstructure
Characterize microstructure by electron diffraction • No strong texture; would eventually like to study textured films
In-situ measurements of thermal conductivity and elastic constants • Full delay time scans of Li0.5CoO2 and LiCoO2
Continuous real-time measurements during electrochemical cycling • With delay time set to a fixed value, ratio can be measured continuously and converted to thermal conductivity.
• Position of acoustic echo requires a scan over a limited range of delay times. Peak volume change is only 1.3% so changes in thickness are negligible.
Continuous real-time measurements during electrochemical cycling • Convert time-axis to composition. (We assume irreversible capacity loss occurs only during the lithiation cycle.) • Thermal conductivity is not a linear function of x; plateau for 0.5
Ex-situ measurements of film annealed at 700°C shows higher conductivity in fully lithiated state.
• Not yet sure of the mechanism. • Different texture? • Larger grain size? • Fewer point defects?
Do Li vacancies scatter phonons? • Classic example of point defect scattering is mass disorder created by isoelectronic substitution, e.g., SiGe alloy dilute SiGe alloys Change in thermal resistivity (Reciprocal of thermal conductivity)
• Unlikely that random Li vacancies alone can explain the dependence of thermal conductivity on x.
Dimensionless mass disorder
Mixture of Li rich and Li poor nanoscale phases? • Evidence in the literature (Reimer et al., JES (1992)) for a two-phase region 0.75
Li content has a strong influence on stiffness of bonds in the CoO2 sheets • Our samples are not textured so the change in longitudinal modulus is most due to C11 (stretch/compress along a-b plane)
• Higher Li content greater electron density in the CoO2 sheets increased bond strengths (?)
Summary • Time-domain thermoreflectance and picosecond acoustics enable real-time measurements of thermal conductivity and elastic constants of electrode materials. • Contrast between low and high thermal conductivity states of LixCoO2 up to a factor of 2.7. • Working on getting full set of elastic constants: by experiment (surface-acoustic waves; orientation dependence) and theory (DFT by Prof. Elif Ertekin). • Changes in longitudinal elastic modulus are linear in x; i.e., virtual crystal or effective medium seems to apply. • Changes in thermal conductivity are not linear in x and show a plateau for 0.5 < x< 0.8. — Speculate that this is caused by changing mixture of phases.
