The structure and morphology of the prepared samples are studied with X-ray diffraction (XRD),neutron diffraction(NPD), Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscope (SEM), and high resolution transmission microscope. Their electrochemical properties are investigated by cyclic voltammetric and capacity retention studies with coin-type cells comprised with cathodes prepared with the prepared powders. The results of Rietveld refinement with XRD patterns show that the calculated lattice parameter decreases with increasing duration of post annealing, while the results of NPD study manifest that the weight fraction of ordered P4332 phase increases at the same time. From the results of capacity retention study, it can be found that the cell prepared with 900oC heat-treated sample exhibits the most promising cycling performance among the prepared samples.
