Paper title:
Investigation of the Ionic Conduction Mechanism of Polyether/Li7La3Zr2O12 Composite Solid Electrolytes by Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy

The abstract extracted from this paper is as follows.
“Polyether-based polymer/cubic Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO) composite solid electrolytes were prepared by dispersing LLZO powder in a lithium (Li) conductive polyether-based solid polymer electrolyte. [SUS∣electrolyte∣SUS] (SUS: stainless steel) and [Li∣electrolyte∣ Li] symmetrical cells were fabricated, and the ionic conductivity, Li/electrolyte interfacial resistance, and Li-cation transport number of the electrolytes were evaluated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The polyether-based polymer/LLZO composite solid electrolytes showed relatively high ionic conductivity of over 10-4 S cm-1 at 333.15 K, along with high electrochemical stability and low interfacial resistance to Li metal electrodes. Remarkable changes of Cole-Cole plots were observed with the variation of LLZO content, which was attributed to the formation of local percolation pathways between LLZO grains in the polymer matrix. Li-ion conduction was faster in the LLZO phase than in the polymer phase. The Li-cation transport number of the polymer/LLZO composite solid electrolytes was almost constant value regardless of LLZO content because of the rate-limiting ionic transport in the polymer phase with a low Li-cation transport number.”
