The structure and properties of the new Ti/TiB2 composite based coating electrode materials prepared by the ion beam sputtering method was analyzed by the SEM, four-probe method and electrochemical workstation. The results show that the introduction of TiB2 intermediate layer can be enhanced binding between the surface coating and the substrate with change the base material structure of electrode, and mud-crack shaped morphology of electrode surface is improved, in addition the resistivity of Ti/TiB2 based coating electrical is reduced 16% than that of Ti-based electrode. Furthermore, the electrochemical behavior of the electrode can be improved by the use of TiB2 intermediate layer, and that laying the foundation for energy-saving fall of the electrode in the practical application.
