Title: Exceptionally High Ionic Conductivity in Na 3 P 0.62 As 0.38 S 4 with Improved Moisture Stability for Solid-State Sodium-Ion Batteries

Abstract

A Na-ion solid-state electrolyte, Na 3P 0.62As 0.38S 4, is developed with an exceptionally high conductivity of 1.46 mS cm -1 at 25 degrees C and enhanced moisture stability. Dual effects of alloying element As (lattice expansion and a weaker As. S bond strength) are responsible for the superior conductivity. Improved moisture stability is regulated by shifting low-energy moisture reactions to high-energy ones due to As.
