Schematic diagram for Li deposition of Li foils coated with a GZCNT interfacial layer. The bottom lithiophilic part of the GZCNT layer anchored onto the Li foil and effectively ensured even Li plating by regulating deposition, while the top lithiophobic part maintained a porous morphology to facilitate Li diffusion and hinder dendrite formation, resulting in the formation of a dendrite-free Li-metal anode
