Title: PRE-DOPED ANODES AND METHODS AND APPARATUSES FOR MAKING SAME
Abstract:
An energy storage device can include a cathode, an anode, and a separator between the cathode and the anode, where the anode can have a desired lithium pre-doping level to facilitate desired capacitor performance. Controlled anode pre-doping can include printing lithium powder or a mixture including lithium powder onto a surface of the anode. Controlled anode pre-doping can include electrochemically incorporating lithium ions into the anode. A duration of the pre-doping process can be selected such that desired anode pre- doping is achieved.
