Sn-Zr and Ag-doped Sn-Zr thin films were prepared by an electron-beam evaporation method using pure separate metal sources. Electrochemical cycling performance was obtained as a function of film composition. The cycling stability of Sn-Zr film electrodes increased with Zr content. An Ag-doped Sn-Zr thin film such as Sn57Zr33Ag10 showed excellent cycling stability and capacity retention. The composition dependence on electrochemical behavior is related to the microstructural changes in the films.
