Abstract / Full Text

Composite solid electrolytes (1 – х)LiTi2(PO4)3xLiClO4 are synthesized and their conducting properties are studied. Heterogeneous doping of LiTi2(PO4)3 with lithium perchlorate LiClO4 leads to a considerable increase of ionic conductivity and a decrease of activation energy as compared to the pure compound, which was not subjected to the pre-sintering. The conductivity of the composites reaches 6.8 × 10–6 S/cm at 100°C and 3.4 × 10–4 S/cm at 200°C with an activation energy of 0.62 eV.
