Transition metal sulfides have a great potential for energy storage due to the pronouncedly higher capacity (owing to conversion to metal or even alloy) than traditional insertion electrode materials. However, the poor cycling stability still limits the development and application in lithium and sodium ion batteries. Here, taking SnS as a model material, a(More)
We report on a new ultrafast solid electrolyte of the composition Li11Si2PS12, which exhibits a higher room-temperature Li ion diffusivity than the present record holder Li10GeP2S12. We discuss the high-pressure synthesis and ion dynamics of tetragonal Li11Si2PS12, and comparison is made with our investigations of related members of the LMePS family, i.e.(More)
The generalized equivalent circuit for Hebb– Wagner polarization in the frequency domain proposed by Jamnik and Maier (J Electrochem Soc 146:4183, 1999) includes the space-charge polarization that was previously neglected. In the present work, using a self-coded Fortran program, the completely generalized equivalent circuit is successfully applied to a(More)
We show that within the validity range of local thermal equilibrium--therein, however, irrespective of the magnitude of the driving force--a simple current equation can be formulated that expresses the current in terms of a product of a local nonequilibrium conductivity and a sinh function of half the electrochemical potential drop (normalized with respect(More)
Mixed conductors-single phases that conduct electronically and ionically-enable stoichiometric variations in a material and, therefore, mass storage and redistribution, for example, in battery electrodes. We have considered how such properties may be achieved synergistically in solid two-phase systems, forming artificial mixed conductors. Previously(More)
Using spherical aberration corrected high-resolution and analytical scanning transmission electron microscopy, we have quantitatively studied the lattice distortion and the redistribution of charges in two-dimensionally strontium (Sr)-doped La2CuO4 superlattices, in which single LaO planes are periodically replaced by SrO planes. As shown previously, such(More)
