Surface morphological changes of Li powder compacted electrodes were investigated and compared with extruded Li foil electrodes during the dissolution (discharge)/deposition (charge) process. The area of dendrite growing surfaces was reduced remarkably for Li powder compacted electrodes. Impedance measurements showed that Li compacted powder electrodes had a lower resistance than Li foil electrodes. This is presumed to be related with resistance reduction due to increasing ion conductivity in the SEI (solid electrolyte interface) formed on the surface along with the increase of the reaction area for the powder electrode.
