The research project of Stefan deals with Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO) based solid ion conductors. Due to their high Li-ion conductivity and excellent chemical and electrochemical stability, LLZO garnets are among the most promising candidates for solid-state electrolytes to be used in future Li-ion batteries.

In order to improve the synthesis as well as to get a better understanding of the material properties Stefan investigates his LLZO samples with various analysis techniques, including electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and inductively coupled optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES).
