Summary Nonuniform electrodeposition is a major concern in almost every practical electrodeposition application. The ablility to control nonuniformity in electrodeposition is the key to successful plating for corrosion resistance, and more especially to meeting the very exacting requirements of electroforming, electrodeposition. This paper presents a novel technique namely the wire beam electrode (WBE) for characterizing and monitoring nonuniform electroplating processes. For the first time, the nonuniform distribution of electroplating currents (NDEC) has been mapped. Preliminary experimental results indicated that electrochemical heterogeneity was the key factor affecting NDEC. The secondary current distribution, rather than the primary current distribution, played a major role in determining the NDEC. This work suggests that the WBE is a practical tool for characterizing and optimizing electrodeposition processes and for verifying the accuracy and completeness of mathematic modelling of electrodeposition processes.
