Potential Distribution in the Electrolyte and Current Distribution on the Electrode Surface

Abstract

The growth rate, composition, microstructure and properties of an electrodeposited metal or alloy are mainly determined by the potential and current distribution at the electrode. It is therefore essential to understand the phenomena that determine potential and current distribution in order to control the film characteristics. For example, an inhomogeneous current distribution may result in a non-uniform film thickness, with possible negative impact on the functional properties of the coating.
