We have developed an in situ and nanoscale Li diffusion measurement method in Li battery materials using an $$alpha$$-emitting radioactive $$^{8}$$Li tracer. In this method, while implanting a low-energy (8 keV) $$^{8}$$Li beam, the $$alpha$$ particles emitted at a small angle (10$$^{circ}$$) relative to the sample surface were detected as a function of time. Measurement for Li diffusion coefficients in a spinel phase LiMn$$_4$$O$$_4$$ (LMO) thin film has been started, which is used as an electrode in a Li ion secondary battery. An obvious Li diffusion effect in LMO was observed at the sample temperature of 623 K, and the further measurement is underway.
