The article reports that electrodeposition of metals can be stabilized by confining ion transport to length scales below a few hundred nanometers. It is also shown that dendrite growth can be arrested in electrolytes with mechanical moduli well below that of the metal. This finding contradicts current orthodoxy, which holds that solid-state electrolytes with moduli higher than the metal are required for preventing dendrite growth.
