  3. Flexible and low-cost poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO)-based electrolytes are promising for all-solid-state Li-metal batteries because of their compatibility with a metallic lithium anode. However, the low room-temperature Li-ion conductivity of PEO solid electrolytes and severe lithium-dendrite growth limit their application in high-energy Li-metal batteries. Here we prepared a PEO/perovskite Li 3/8 Sr 7/16 Ta 3/4 Zr 1/4 O 3 composite electrolyte with a Li-ion conductivity of 5.4 × 10 −5 and 3.5 × 10 −4 S cm −1 at 25 and 45 °C, respectively; the strong interaction between the F − of TFSI − (bis-trifluoromethanesulfonimide) and the surface Ta 5+ of the perovskite improves the Li-ion transport at the PEO/perovskite interface. A symmetric Li/composite electrolyte/Li cell shows an excellent cyclability at a high current density up to 0.6 mA cm −2 . A solid electrolyte interphase layer formed in situ between the metallic lithium anode and the composite electrolyte suppresses lithium-dendrite formation and growth. All-solid-state Li|LiFePO 4 and high-voltage Li|LiNi 0.8 Mn 0.1 Co 0.1 O 2 batteries with the composite electrolyte have an impressive performance with high Coulombic efficiencies, small overpotentials, and good cycling stability.

  4. Significance

    The quasi–1-dimensional bismuth bromide, α-Bi4Br4, has been predicted to be a rotational symmetry-protected topological crystalline insulator. The structural study under high pressure indicates that the α-Bi4Br4phase is stable up to 4.3 GPa. There is a rich phase diagram of physical properties under high pressure in the α-Bi4Br4phase (i.e., a pressure-induced insulator–metal transition and, most importantly, a superconductive phase near the boundary of the insulator–metal transition). These findings help to answer questions, such as whether it is possible for the symmetry-protected electrons to form Cooper pairs. The α-Bi4Br4undergoes a pressure-induced structural transition above 4.3 GPa to a triclinicP-1 phase, which is another superconductive phase.
