Electrocrystallization and the Electrolytic Deposition Mechanism for Silver

When a crystal has become covered with faces and has taken up a transitional or steady-state growth form, the subsequent growth rate is determined by the normal growth rate of the existing faces; if there are no other additional conditions that complicate the growth such as diffusion or adsorption, these faces will be the most close-packed, i.e., they belong to the equilibrium form. The theory envisages two basic growth mechanisms for such faces, one of which is the two-dimensional mechanism, in which the growth occurs by layerwise fluctuation production of each fresh layer. The second is the spiral growth mechanism, which occurs when there are screw dislocations, and this is the main mechanism found in nature.
