<Details>

All-solid state Li-ion batteries (ASS-LIBs) are expected to be the next generation battery, however, their large interfacial resistance hinders their widespread application. We used first-principles calculation method and analyzed the atomic structure and Li-vacancy formation energies between cathode and solid electrolyte interface and found the characteristic feature of electrode/electrolyte interface.
