Abstract
Films of V0.9Mo0.1O2.55 were fabricated by spin-coating or casting techniqu e using a solution of molybdenum-doped polyvanadate. Their lithium insertio n/extraction performance was investigated in a LiClO4/propylene carbonate s olution. A coated thin film (0.4 mum in thickness) showed the capacity of a bout 14 muA h/cm(2) at the current density of 25 muA/cm(2) between 3.5 and 2.2 V (vs. Li). This level of capacity was maintained through 100 times of discharge/charge cycles, performed with the cut-off voltages of 4.7 and 2.2 V. The capacity of cast films increased linearly with their thickness up t o 18 mum (480 muA h/cm(2) at this thickness) at the slope of 27 muA h/cm(2) /mum, which was almost comparable to the per-thickness capacity of far thin ner coated films. Such cast films also showed good cyclic performance. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
