Abstract:   (5237 Views)
Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO) garnets are one of the promising materials as electrolytes for solid-state batteries. In this study, Li7-3xAlxLa3Zr2O12 (x= 0.22, 0.25, and 0.28) garnet is synthesized using the combustion sol-gel method to stabilize the cubic phase for higher ionic conductivity. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) results of as-synthesized powders reveal that by addition of 0.22 and 0.25 mole Al, the tetragonal phase still co-exist, whereas 0.28 mole Al addition resulted in a single cubic phase. Afterward, the as-synthesized powders are pressed and sintered at 1180°C for 10h. The hardness evaluation revealed that Al addition increases the hardness that shows better resistance against Li dendrite formation. Besides, the secondary electron microscopy results demonstrate that the dopant has not a huge impact on particle size and grain growth whereas the porosity content has been changed. Finally, the investigation of samples' electrochemical behavior reveals that the addition of Al increases the ionic conductivity of samples by increasing the density and stability of the cubic phase as well. The results declare that the 0.25 Al sample has the highest ionic conductivity. This behavior is thought to be due to the promotion of sintering and increment of bulk ionic conductivity by doping Al.
