Nickle-rich LiNi0.8Mn0.1Co0.1O2 (NMC 811) cathode material exhibits engaging properties in high energy density and low cost, making it great potential for the next generation high-energy all-solid-state lithium batteries (ASSLBs). However, NMC 811 suffers from severe surface electrochemical, chemical, and voltage incompatibility towards solid-state electrolytes (SSE), especially thiophosphate-based electrolytes like Li6PS5Cl. Although diverse coating methods have been made to overcome this issue, they are typically cumbersome and expensive. A coating strategy that satisfied all the requirements of cost-efficiency, stability, uniformity, scalability, and easy-achieving is still challenging. In this work, we developed a LiOH-based surface stabilization strategy that provides a similar to 10 nm stable permeable layer on NMC 811. After one-step sintering of NMC 811 precursor mixed with LiOH, which is commonly used for NMC 811 lithiation process, excessive LiOH simultaneously distributes on NMC 811 particles. Unlike other reported methods, this coating method can be easily controlled and fabricated without additional complicated processes. By simply controlling the thickness of LiOH layer, which protects the Li6PS5Cl solid electrolyte materials from being oxidized, optimized cycling stability can be obtained for 600 cycles with capacity of 130 mAh g(-1) on average at a wide electrochemical window of 2.50-4.20 V (vs. Li-In).
