    About phase: The coexistence of rhombohedral LiTMO2 (TM=Ni, Co, or Mn) and monoclinic Li2MnO3-like structures inside Li1.2Mn0.567Ni0.166Co0.067O 2 is revealed directly at atomic resolution. The hetero-interface along the [001]rh/[103]mon zone axis direction is demonstrated, indicating the two-phase nature of these lithium-rich cathode materials (greenLi, blueMn, redO, cyanTM).
