Ion-transport paths: Combined modeling and neutron diffraction studies provide atomic-scale insights into Li2FeP2O7, a material proposed for a new lithium-battery cathode with reversible electrode operation at the highest voltage of all known Fe-based phosphates. The results indicate that Li+ ions are transported rapidly through a 2D network along the paths shown in green in the picture.
