This work reports a physical mixture aswell as an integrated composite structure (ICS) of lithium-excess layered oxides and high voltage spinel oxides. With respect to physical mixture (PM), the improvement has shown in cycling retention. Different synthesis routes would result in drastically different properties in the composite case. The optimized composite, in comparison with the non-optimized one, both energy density and the power density have increased. The optimized composite could deliver 125 mAh/g capacity after 200 cycles at a rate of 1.2 C. Thework here provides some new insights into how to design better cathode materials for lithium ion batteries. © The Author(s) 2014. Published by ECS.
