During electrodeposition, Si4+ transfers from the electrolyte into the lattice of nucleated site via the step—edge site and terrace site ion—transfer mechanism. However, under higher deposition rates and thicker depletion layer, Si4+ has a tendency to directly deposit on top of the nucleated site. This ionically depleted region restricts the growth in the horizontal direction preventing the coalescence of adjacent growth regions forming a discontinuous layer. Pulse current electrodeposition modifies this depleted region forming continuous high strength Si films with smaller grains and good interface adhesion thus, improving the cycling stability in LIBs.
