<p>The structure of ordered-olivine LiCoPO<sub>4</sub> was identified by neutron diffraction measurements. A 4.8 V discharge profile was demonstrated using coin-type cells. XAFS and magnetic measurements indicated that the high-voltage plateau of Li<sub>1−x</sub>CoPO<sub>4</sub> corresponds to the Co<sup>2+</sup>/Co<sup>3+</sup> redox reaction.</p>
