There is a critical need to develop new energy systems that operate both efficiently and economically on renewable sources. In order to utilize these systems effectively, it is necessary to develop batteries to store the produced energy that are stable in extreme conditions and have enhanced high-voltage and high-capacity capabilities. Despite the steadily increasing body of work in Li-battery research, few researchers are investigating all-ceramic batteries. One potential electrolyte used for these types of batteries is the Li<SUB>0.35</SUB>La<SUB>0.55</SUB>TiO<SUB>3</SUB> (LLT) composition. In this work, the compatibility of LLT with electrodes such as LiCoO<SUB>2</SUB>, LiMn<SUB>2</SUB>O<SUB>4</SUB>, and Li<SUB>4</SUB>Mn<SUB>5</SUB>O<SUB>12</SUB> was investigated. The single problem yet to be successfully addressed is the poor contact between the electrolyte and electrode which leads to high charge transfer resistance and lower battery performance. This work will focus on developing novel electrode architectures in order to improve the electrolyte–electrode interface and therefore improve battery performance.
