Silson developed and fabricated wet cells for this study of rechargeable Zn–air battery anodes in deep eutectic solvent electrolyte. Silson’s wet cells enabled the investigation of operando phase formation studies under standard electrochemical control during soft X‐ray transmission measurements. The wet cell consisted of a gold three‐electrode configuration supported on a 100‐nm thick Si3N4 window with area of 500 μm2. The geometry of the cell allowed for the keeping within the field of view of the microscope an area exhibiting a range of reaction rates correlating with position, thus imparting combinatorial capability to the cell.
