Abstract

Advanced superionic conductors (AdSICs) have the best ion-transport properties. These properties are determined by the AdSIC crystal structure that is close to optimal for fast ionic transport (FIT). The structure represents a close-packed cubic lattice of motionless ions penetrated by a 3D-network of uniform FIT-tunnels in which mobile ions move by hopping mechanism. The descriptors, based on a symmetry group of an immobile rigid sublattice and a local symmetry interconnected interstitial sites through which mobile ions move, are revealed. A new geometry and packing of FIT-tunnels inside the unit cell are presented. Some unusual properties of AdSICs are discussed. It is shown that the specific crystal structure of AdSICs may serve as a basis for searching and 3-D designing new solid ionic materials with high ion-transport properties.

Keywords: Advanced superionic conductors, structural descriptors, tunnels of fast ionic transport, universal dynamic response, 3-D structure design
