Our paper “Atomic Layer Deposition and First Principles Modeling of Glassy Li3BO3-Li2CO3 electrolytes for solid-state Li metal batteries” is published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A. In this collaborative work with the Siegel and Sakamoto groups at UM, we report the highest Li-ion conductivity to date in an ALD solid electrolyte, which is also stable against Li metal and air exposure.
