Atomic diffusion in insertion electrodes such as hydride-forming metals and transition metal oxides may induce structural deformation due to a volume change, modifying the physical properties of the electrode. Also, the strain or stress field induced by an external force, for example, elastic bending, may influence the diffusion process in the electrode, because of the resulting inhomogeneous distribution of the atoms. The relationship between the diffusion and macroscopic deformation of the electrode can be classified into the elasto-diffusive and diffusion-elastic phenomena as schematically illustrated in Table 6.1 [1].
