23_47/2011Nanoscale In Situ Characterization of Li-Ion Batteries: Nanoscale In Situ Characterization of Li-ion Battery Electrochemistry Via Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (Adv. Mater. 47/2011)

Scanning ion conductance microscopy has been developed by Mark C. Hersam and co-workers as a tool for studying Li-ion battery electrodes, such as LiCoO2. This novel in situ technique, reported on page 5613, concurrently measures the local electrochemistry and topography at the nanoscale, thus yielding unprecedented insight into the evolution of Li-ion battery electrodes during cycling.
