The solid state battery material Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO) is one of the most promising solid electrolytes. If improvements can be made to this material and its interfaces with the cathode, it may be possible to replace current liquid electrolyte batteries with this safer, more energy dense alternative. To better understand LLZO at the interface with the common cathode material LiCoO2, we calculate the elastic and electronic properties of Co-doped LLZO.
