Abstract

This study exhibits influence of deposition rate on LiCoO2 epitaxial films prepared by pulsed laser deposition. High deposition rates tend to destabilize trivalent Co, resulting in formation of an oxygen-deficient phase with a rock-salt structure as an impurity in the deposited films. Because the oxygen-deficient phase originates from incomplete oxidation, post-annealing in air eliminates the impurity phase. Moreover, since it also improves the crystallinity of the film, the post-annealing enhances the electrode performance of the LiCoO2 films.
