In sheet-type all-solid-state lithium-ion batteries with the sulfide-based solid electrolyte, composite electrodes consist of active material, solid electrolyte, conductive additive material, and binder. Thus, they form a three-dimensional ionic and electronic conduction pass. In composite electrodes, the reaction inhomogeneity derived from their morphology exerts a remarkable effect on battery performance. In this study, we prepared sheet-type composite electrodes for all-solid-state lithium-ion batteries with the sulfide-based solid electrolyte using different binder materials with different solvents and investigated the reaction distribution within the electrodes using the 2D-imaging X-ray absorption spectroscopy. Thus, we demonstrated that the dominant factor of the reaction distribution formation is the ionic conduction, depending on the structure of the composite electrode, and that the structure is influenced by the combination between the binder and the solvent used in the preparation of the sheet-type composite electrode.
