Superionic conductors are unusual solids in which the regularity of the crystalline lattice is significantly disrupted. As a consequence, the basic concepts of solid-state physics — phonons, energy bands, Brillouin zones-must be, to some extent, modified or abandoned. The recent renewal of interest in the physical properties of superionic conductors is part of the general development of the physics of non-crystalline phases — abetted, in this case, by technological applications of these materials as solid electrolytes.
