    • Abstract


      In the present work, the electrochemical behaviour of LiFePO4/C electrode has been reported. Specially, the electrochemical impedance spectroscopies (EIS) have been studied in detail. The discharge capacity is more than 120 mAh/g. There are two semicircles being found in the Nyquist plot for the cycled electrode and one semicircle for the as-prepared electrode. It is found that the interface capacitance is in an order of magnitude of 10 𝜇F/cm2 for the high-frequency semicircle, while for the second semicircle the interface capacitance is $5.3 \tilde 45.4 \times 10^3$ 𝜇F/cm2. It could be concluded that the high-frequency semicircle is to correspond to the charge transfer process. The function of the carbon layer is also briefly discussed.
