Molecular structural analysis of 55mol% CuI-45mol% Ag2MoO4 solid electrolyte using XPS and laser raman techniques

The solid electrolyte 55 mol% CuI - 45 mol% Ag2MoO4 has been analyzed structurally by employing X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic (XPS) and laser Raman studies. The core level Ag 3d, Cu 2p, Mo 3d, I 3d and O1s XPS spectra of the constituent elements were recorded. The presence of both bridging (BO) and non-bridging (NBO) oxygen atoms in the oxyanion framework has been identified through the deconvolution of the O 1s spectrum. Laser Raman spectroscopic studies tend to reveal that the oxyanion framework is constructed with [MoO 4 2− ]-tetrahedral and [MoO6]-octahedral units as in the case of CuI - Cu2MoO4 and AgI - Ag2O - MoO3 glasses.
