Strain Effects in Intercalation Systems
In this paper we discuss the effects of host lattice strain on the behavior of intercalation systems. In particular, we discuss the role of lattice strain in two kinds of Li intercalation systems: Li/LixMX2 cells, where MX2 is a layered structure, such as a transition metal dichalcogenide; and Li/LixMO2 cells, where MO2 is a channeled structure, such as a rutile or distorted rutile transition metal dioxide. We shall discuss the main physical principles underlying the strain effects, quoting the theoretical results without proof. Details of our calculations will be published elsewhere.
