Cut surface quality of electrodes' affect lithium-ion battery performance. Current uses of mechanical cutting require expensive tooling. Furthermore, tool wears out over time so that it results in process instability and poor cut quality. This may cause an internal short circuit and significant heat generation. These problems can be solved by using a laser cutting technique since it has many advantages, such as no tool wear, high energy concentration, fast processing speed, very narrow heat affected zone, applicability to nearly all materials, and flexibility of laser power. Understanding physical phenomena provides significant advantages to fully utilize the remote laser cutting of electrodes for lithium-ion batteries.
