Composite electrodes consisting of cathode particles and an ion-conducting phase can address the limited ion accessibility of the cathode in high-energy all-solid-state lithium batteries. In this Letter, we discuss the microstructure-conductivity relationship in an electronic-ionic composite with a focus on lithium ion conductivity. This study is the first step toward further understanding of electrochemical reactions in all solid multiphase systems.
