Abstract

Lithium sulfide (Li2S)-carbon composite positive electrodes were prepared by the spark-plasma-sintering (SPS) process for use in rechargeable lithium batteries. By the SPS treatment of Li2S and acetylene black (AB) blended powder, the strong binding between the active materials and the carbon powders were formed. Such contact effect improved the electrochemical performance of the cells with liquid electrolytes (1M LiFP6/(EC+DMC)) , probably due to the increase in conductivity of the positive electrodes, though the samples prepared by the ball-milling process showed no significant capacity in the electrochemical tests.
