All Solid Thick Oxide Cathodes Based on Low Temperature Sintering for High Energy Solid Batteries

Abstract

Solid-state batteries (SSBs) could significantly improve safety and energy density over the conventional liquid cells. One key enabling technology is solid electrolytes. NASICON-type Li1.3Al0.3Ti1.7(PO4)3 (LATP) is a very attractive solid-state electrolyte for the cathode side due to its high oxidation potential and high ionic conductivity. The usage, however, is limited by its large interfacial resistances against most of the cathode materials as well as the thermodynamic instability during high temperature sintering needed to achieve high mass density. Here we construct a thin, percolative, and mixed conductive interphases through in-situ low-melting-point liquid sintering. These mixed conductive interphases drastically improve the kinetics, leading to high-loading solid LATP/LiCoO2 cathodes up to ~ 6 mAh cm−2. The technique is also applicable to Ni-rich cathode materials, achieving up to ~ 10 mAh cm−2, which can lead to more than 400 Wh kg−1 cells in SSBs. Our composite cathodes show a ten-times and three-times area capacity improvement over the state-of-the-art cathodes using oxide and sulfide SSEs, respectively.
