Electrodeposits: Phenomenology and Theory

Abstract

The process of electrodeposition belongs to the large class of growth and aggregation processes in nature. Biological growth processes were first considered in a systematic way at the beginning of this century by D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson in his famous book “On Growth and Form” [1]. It became evident that different growth conditions yield a rich phenomenology of patterns, and that these growth conditions should somehow be related to the particular pattern formed. Growth in biological systems is, to a large extent, governed by the underlying genetic code; in physical and chemical systems, there is no such thing as a genetic code, therefore in these systems the resulting pattern depends much more on the external conditions under which it is formed, a fact which makes physical growth processes much more amenable to experimental investigation.
