LiCoO2 is the most common lithium storage material used as positive electrode in lithium rechargeable batteries. Ordering of lithium and vacancies has a profound effect on the physical properties of LixCoO2 and the electrochemical performances of lithium batteries. An exit surface wave (ESW) phase image reconstructed from experimental images obtained on the LBNL One-Angstrom Microscope (OAM) shows all three types of atoms in LiCoO2.
