Ionic conduction in dispersed solid-electrolytes

In recent years, considerable interest has been focussed on developing solid electrolytes with high ionic conductivities. One of the latest techniques is the dispersion of a non-conducting and chemically non-interacting phase in the solid electrolyte. These electrolytes have been referred to as dispersed solid-electrolyte systems. The present paper briefly reviews the characteristic features of dispersed solid-electrolytes and the mode of ion conduction in these systems.
