New high conductivity composite solid electrolyte for solid-state Li batteries

Green Car Congress

Researchers in S. Korea have developed a new composite solid electrolyte that shows very high total conductivity (9.4 × 10- 4 S cm -1 ) at room temperaturefor all-solid-state lithium batteries. The new composite combines Li 1+x Al x Ti 2-x (PO 4 ) 3 (LATP) with a NASICON (Na superionic conductor)-like structure with Bi 2 O 3. LATP is regarded as a promising solid electrolyte due to its high “bulk” conductivity (~10 -3 S cm -1 ) and excellent stability against air and moisture.
