Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is widely used in battery analysis as it is simple to implement and non-destructive. However, the data provided is a global representation of all electrochemical processes within the cell and much useful information is ambiguous or inaccessible when using traditional analysis techniques. This is a major challenge when EIS is used to analyse systems with complex cell chemistries, like lithium-sulfur (Li-S), one of the strongest candidates to supersede conventional Li-ion batteries. Here we demonstrate the application of distribution of relaxation times (DRT) analysis for quantitative deconvolution of EIS spectra from Li-S batteries, revealing the contributions of (eight) distinct electrode processes to the total cell polarisation. The DRT profile is shown to be strongly dependent on cell state-of-charge, offering a route to automated and on-board analysis of Li-S cells.
