Electrical conductivity of a sputter-deposited LiCoO2 thin film was studied in situ during electrochemical lithium extraction/insertion, revealing that the metallic behavior of Li1-xCoO2 induced by the initial lithium extraction did not revert to its original insulating state in the following successive reduction/oxidation cycles.
