Morphogenesis in metal electrodeposition. (English) Zbl 1264.78027

Summary: This paper offers an overview of morphogenetic processes going on in metal electrodeposition processes and provides a systematisation of the morphology classes identified experimentally in terms of an electrokinetic theory accounting for charge-transfer and mass-transport rates. In addition, it provides a review of the modelling work by the authors, based on a reaction-diffusion system coupling morphology with surface chemistry of the growing metal and briefly describes the experimental validation of the model.
