- A Tale of Two Sites: On Defining the Carrier Concentration in Garnet-Based Ionic Conductors for Advanced Li Batteries
Travis Thompson, Asma Sharafi, Michelle D. Johannes, Ashfia Huq, Jan L. Allen, Jeff Wolfenstine and Jeff Sakamoto
Article first published online: 21 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500096
The bulk ionic conductivity is correlated to the Li site distribution for a series of cubic Li7La3Zr2O12 compositions stabilized by supervalent substitution with Ta. The ionic conductivity maximizes at the cubic-to-tetragonal phase transformation because this represents the maximum in octahedrally coordinated Li and minimum in tetrahedrally coordinated Li site occupancies. Li-ion conducting garnets can enable several beyond Li-ion technologies.
- Electrocatalysts: Efficient Water Splitting Using a Simple Ni/N/C Paper Electrocatalyst (Adv. Energy Mater. 6/2015)
Jiawen Ren, Markus Antonietti and Tim-Patrick Fellinger
Article first published online: 18 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201570029
In article number 1401660, Tim-Patrick Fellinger and co-workers show that it is possible to make highly active and cheap catalysts using an easy-to-do recipe. The cover image illustrates that rain splits at the interface of gemstones and carbonized paper. This indicates the symbiotic interaction of nickel oxide nanoparticles and nitrogen-doped carbon, which leads to a bifunctional water-splitting electrocatalyst.
- Organic Photovoltaic Devices: Low Substrate Temperature Encapsulation for Flexible Electrodes and Organic Photovoltaics (Adv. Energy Mater. 6/2015)
Nan Chen, Peter Kovacik, Rachel M. Howden, Xiaoxue Wang, Sunghwan Lee and Karen K. Gleason
Article first published online: 18 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201570030
In article number 1401442, Karen K. Gleason and co-workers report a novel bilayer encapsulation strategy based on initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD). This damage-free and solvent-free method provides conformal and flexible protection to organic photovoltaic devices. For the first time, a vapor-deposited UV-screening layer of CeO2 is applied on organic photovoltaics as an encapsulation material.
