Abstract

This paper starts with the structure design of the electrode base material, Ti/Cu electrode material instead of single metal Ti as the base material which was prepared by hot diffusion welding, the change of composite material structure is influences on electrochemical properties of Ti/Cu that was analyzed by SEM, electrochemical workstation and so on. The results show that the design changes of matrix structure of traditional Ti electrode is good for enhance the electrochemical performance of electrode, due to the design of layered composite structure was used, the inner Cu of composite material is current collector electrode and conductive channel carrier , it reduces the resistivity of the electrode material (its resistivity is only 1/15 of pure titanium electrode material) and improves the electrical conductivity of the electrode, in order to realize the uniformity of the current in the electrode, the electrochemical performance of the electrode was improved for the novel Ti/Cu laminated composite electrode materials.
