Abstract: LiCoO2 thin films were prepared by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) on Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si (Pt) and Au/MgO/Si (Au) substrates, respectively. Crystal structures and surface morphologies of thin films were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). The LiCoO2 thin films deposited on the Pt substrates exhibited a preferred (0 0 3) texture with smooth surfaces while the LiCoO2 thin films deposited on the Au substrates exhibited a preferred (1 0 4) texture with rough surfaces. The electrochemical properties of the LiCoO2 films with different textures were compared with charge-discharge, dQ/dV, and Li diffusion measurements (PITT). Compared with the (1 0 4)-textured LiCoO2 thin films, the (0 0 3)-textured thin films exhibited relatively lower electrochemical activity. However, the advantage of the (1 0 4)-textured film only remained for a small number of cycles due to the relatively faster capacity fade. Li diffusion measurements showed that the Li diffusivity in the (0 0 3)-textured film is one order of magnitude lower than that in the (1 0 4)-textured film. As discussed in this paper, we believe that Li diffusion through grain boundaries is comparable to or even faster than Li diffusion through the grains. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
