ABSTRACT Various three-dimensional (3D) battery architectures have been proposed to address effective power delivery in micro/
nanoscale devices and for increasing the stored energy per electrode footprint area. One step toward obtaining 3D configurations in
batteries is the formation of core-shell nanowires that combines electrode and electrolyte materials. One of the major challenges
however in creating such architectures has been the coating of conformal thin nanolayers of polymer electrolytes around nanostructured
electrodes. Here we show conformal coatings of 25-30 nm poly(methyl methacralate) electrolyte layers around individual Ni-Sn
