The powerful synergy between atomic-resolution electron microscopy and atomistic simulation techniques encompassing both first-principles and classical force-field calculations is illustrated through a study of grain boundaries, domain boundaries and surfaces of the lithium-ion secondary battery cathode material LiCoO2. Epitaxial thin films of LiCoO2 deposited on sapphire (0001) substrates are used as model samples, and results from simulation and experiment combined to characterize the structures and properties of representative interfaces.
