All-solid-state batteries are expected to be promising next-generation energy storage systems with increased energy density compared to the state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries. Nonetheless, the electrochemical performances of the all-solid-state batteries are currently limited by the high interfacial resistance between active electrode materials and solid-state electrolytes. In particular, elemental interdiffusion and the formation of interlayers with low ionic conductivity are known to restrict the battery performance. Herein, we apply a nondestructive variable-energy hard X-ray photoemission spectroscopy to detect the elemental chemical states at the interface between the cathode and the solid-state electrolyte, in comparison to the widely used angle-resolved (variable-angle) X-ray photoemission spectroscopy/X-ray absorption spectroscopy methods. The accuracy of variable-energy hard X-ray photoemission spectroscopy is also verified with a focused ion beam and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. We also show the significant suppression of interdiffusion by building an artificial layer via atomic layer deposition at this interface.
