Research and development of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs)require powerful characterization approaches. Atomic force microscopy (AFM)is a multifunctional method that allows investigation of the topography, the electrochemical reactions, the ion transport phenomena, and the surface potential of samples at high resolution. Thus, this technique plays an increasingly important role in the study of LIBs. Herein, the progresses made in the application of AFM for the study of LIBs are reviewed and discussed.
