A new article from the group describing the preparation and properties of thin films within the Li-La-Zr-O space has been published in Thin Solid Films. Kudos to former group member (LBNL chapter), Joong Sun Park, for his very thorough work.

In a new paper in Chemistry of Materials, we demonstrate a strategy toward the stabilization of battery electrode-electrolyte interfaces designing nanocrystals with a core composed of an electroactive oxide, which is passivated by an ultrathin epitaxial oxide shell enriched in a redox inactive ion. The validity of the concept is proved with LiMn2O4-type nanocrystals with a 1–2 nm Al-rich shell. This paper is the result of very careful work by Chunjoong Kim and Linping Xu, a former Cabana group member in the LBNL chapter. A job greatly done, Chunjoong and Linping!
