Abstract: The electrochemical intercalation reaction of lithium cell was investigated by photoelectrochemical technique. The experimental results show that the lithium ions inserting into the orystal lattice of the cathode, act as a donor impurities and change the semiconductor properties of the cathode matrix. From the change of photovoltage of the cathode during the discharging process of the lithium cell, the intercalation process of lithium ions could be studied in-situ.

Key words: Intercalation reaction, Photoelectrochemistry, Cupric oxide
