High electrical storage capacities make intermetallic alloys potential candidates as anode materials in lithium ion batteries. However, their application is hampered by large volume changes that cause aging through pulverization of the electrode. One approach to develop structurally stable electrodes employs intermetallic alloys and composites where an inactive component buffers the mechanical strain during charge and discharge. Advanced computational materials design relies on experimentally determined thermodynamics and phase diagram data of the relevant systems. Comprehensive experimental studies were therefore carried out in promising candidate systems such as Li-Cu-Sn and Cu-Li-Sb. In this contribution, the special experimental setup and selected results will be shown and discussed.
