Original Abstract

The degradation of Lithium-Sulphur cell structure within the charge-discharge cycling limits the lifetime of these devices. The sources of degradation are determined as (i) the change of electrode effective area, (ii) the decrease of electrolyte conductivity and (iii) the degradation of the potential barriers existing on the electrode/electrolyte interface. The mechanisms responsible for the Li-S structure degradation were indicated as the decrease of Sulphur quantity in the vicinity of carbon electrode available for the electrochemical reactions, and the thermal degradation of the electrolyte resulting from the temperature increase due to the cell cycling. Cycle life is influenced by the end-of-charge voltage (EOCV), end-of-discharge voltage (EODV) as well as by the charge-discharge current rate. The degradation of Li-S cell is accelerated by including the relaxation between the cell charge and discharge, i.e. keeping the cell in the charged state.
