Abstract:

The research program clearly established that a reversible cathode material with a highly anisotropic structure could be prepared as a thin film, 2 to 5 micrometers thick. The research emphasized the synthesis of TiS2 by the evaporation of titanium in a plasma-enhanced H2S gas. Nearly-stoichiometric films of TiS2 were produced. The electrical conductivity and certain electrochemical properties of the films were comparable to the bulk material. Lithium diffusion coefficients were found to be lower than the bulk material and dependent upon film composition. Originator supplied keywords include Intercalation compounds Titanium disulfide Lithium diffusion Thin film electrochemical cells.
