A Cu foil current collector was coated with polydopamine-derived nitrogen-doped carbon (N-C) to regulate Li nucleation and growth. The lithium nucleation overpotential was significantly lowered, and Li was deposited in a spherical morphology without dendrites, dramatically improving the Li plating/stripping coulombic efficiency.
