The silicon (light-colored edge) on this silicon-coated carbon nanofiber electrode (dark middle section) swells up as it is being charged with lithium ions under high magnification. A little more than 200 nanometers wide, the electrode's outer edge of silicon and lithium ions crystallize and appear wavy and shiny as the crystalline material changes the reflection of light.
