Abstract

By initially depositing a sub-10 nm-thick SnO2 film, the microstructural evolution that is often considered problematic can be utilized to form Sn nanoparticles on the surface of a 3D current collector for enhanced cycling stability. The work described here highlights a novel approach for the uniform deposition of Sn nanoparticles, which can be used to design electrodes with high capacities and high-rate capabilities.
