Abstract: In this work, we use synchrotron X-ray microtomographic imaging to examine in-situ changes in a silicon / lithium half-cell before and after lithiation. We visualize volume expansion within the silicon electrode matrix and active particle fracturing as a result of the lithiation process. A change in volume fraction of silicon with respect to electrode state-of-charge was also characterized.
