  • Publication number: 20210184214
    Abstract: A conduction path in an all-solid-state secondary battery is difficult to keep with a volume change in an active material due to charging and discharging in some cases. A positive electrode active material with a small volume change between the charged state and the discharged state is used for an all-solid-state secondary battery. For example, a positive electrode active material that has a layered rock-salt crystal structure in the discharged state and a crystal structure similar to the cadmium chloride type crystal structure in the charged state with a depth of charge of approximately 0.8 changes less in its volume and crystal structure between charging and discharging than known positive electrode active materials.

  • Patent number: 10658661
    Abstract: An electrode and a power storage device each of which achieves better charge-discharge cycle characteristics and is less likely to deteriorate owing to separation of an active material, or the like are manufactured. As the electrode for the power storage device, an electrode including a current collector and an active material layer that is over the current collector and includes a particle containing niobium oxide and a granular active material is used, whereby the charge-discharge cycle characteristics of the power storage device can be improved. Moreover, contact between the granular active material and the particle containing niobium oxide makes the granular active material physically fixed; accordingly, deterioration due to expansion and contraction of the active material which occur along with charge and discharge of the power storage device, such as powdering of the active material layer or its separation from the current collector, can be suppressed.
