Infrared and impedance measurements have been carried out on high lithium content boron oxide solid electrolytes xLi2O-B2O3, with x = 3.0-4.5, in order to establish the correlation between their structural and electrical properties. The samples are two-phase materials, in which crystalline islands are scattered throughout the vitreous background phase. The evolution of structural and electrical properties with increasing x exhibits a marked differentiation around x = 4.0, which is associated with increasing crystallization in the material.
