Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With portable and miniaturized electronic devices becoming increasingly pervasive in our daily live, there is a growing demand for lightweight, flexible, and highly-efficient microscale energy storage devices. Among the various energy storage devices, Lithium-ion batteries, Na-ion batteries, supercapacititors and metal-air batteries are promising, owing to the merits of high energy density, long cycle lifetime, and no memory effect in charge–discharge cycling. Nowadays, in-plane ultrathin microscale devices usually demonstrate a higher power density, but sacrifices energy density, owing to the fast 2D ion diffusion but a low mass utilization; additionally, the thicker pattern inversely improves energy density but limits power density. In a recent concept, 3D micro-battery designs based on micro- and nanostructured architectures could potentially double energy density by fully utilizing the limited available space.

This special issue of Applied Sciences on “Laser Processing and Advanced Manufacturing of Microscale Energy Storage Devices” is dedicated, but not limited to, the following aspects of electrode materials:

  • laser processing including laser nanostructuring, laser cutting and laser 3D printing
  • microstructure, spectroscopic, 3D and in-situ characterization
  • electrochemical characterization
  • modeling
  • flexible Li-ion batteries, Na-ion batteries and metal-air batteries
  • supercapacitors
  • 2D materials

Atom-thick two-dimensional materials usually possess unique properties compared to their bulk counterparts. Their properties are significantly affected by defects, which could be uncontrollably introduced by irradiation. The effects of electromagnetic irradiation and particle irradiation on 2H MoS 2 two-dimensional nanolayers are reviewed in this paper, covering heavy ions, protons, electrons, gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet light, terahertz, and infrared irradiation. Various defects in MoS 2 layers were created by the defect engineering. Here we focus on their influence on the structural, electronic, catalytic, and magnetic performance of the 2D materials. Additionally, irradiation-induced doping is discussed and involved. Full article
