Lithium Iron Phosphate

Lithium ions diffuse in 1 dimensional channels consist of chains of octahedral sites. It is a relatively economic cathode material, with iron being one of most abundant element on the earth.


Lithium Cobalt Oxide

Lithium ions diffuse in 2 dimensional planes separated by CoO2 layers.It is the most widely used cathode material in consumer electronics since SONY first introduced it in 1991.

Lithium Manganese Oxide

Lithium ions diffuse in 3 dimensions in spinel LiMn2O4 by hopping between tetrahedral sites via intermediate octahedral sites.
