The aging behaviour of thin-film multi-layered electrodes consisting from alternating layers of Si-O and Si-O-Al has been studied with using of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The equivalent circuit comprising weak inductance, ohmic resistance, and three parallel combinations of resistance and \text{CPE was proposed. The most interesting feature of the EIS data is non-monotonous change equivalent circuit components during the storage. This fact testifies dynamic character of SEI which manifests itself not only at the cycling but at OCP storage as well.
