Abstract


This paper presents the effect of polymer (polyvinyl alcohol) on the growth of copper fractal formation. A thin layer electrochemical cell was designed for the study of copper electrodeposition process. The structure and morphology for the copper fractal patterns were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The copper fractal dimension was measured by using box counting method. On the basis of diffusion limited aggregation (DLA) model, growth pattern of copper fractal is two dimensional in nature. The copper fractal dimension is affected by the composition of polyvinyl alcohol. The growth pattern of copper fractal formation was measured under constant potential condition.
