Theoretical pulse charge for the optimal inhibition of growing dendrites


Dendritic growth during charging period is one of the main barriers for the rechargeablity of conventional batteries. Additionally this phenomenon hinders the utilization of high energy density metal candidates by limiting the safety and allowable operating condition for these devices. We address the role of square wave pulse on the growth dynamics of dendrites in the continuum scale and large time periods by formulating an analytical criterion. Our dimension-free analysis permits the application our results to a variety of electrochemical systems in diverse scales.
