Study on the Anode-to-Cathode Distance in an Aluminum Reduction

... In the electrolysis bath, we have a maximum thermal gradient mainly in the z direction in the anode. A typical temperature range in the z direction of the anode is from 673 K (400 C) in the top to 1233 K (960 C) in the wear surface. The resistivity of the anode will decrease by approximately 1 lXm ...

... Q, the activation energy, is expressed as energy (joules per atom). If Q is expressed per mole, or atom gram, then R (the gas constant) should be used instead of k (Boltzmann’s constant). The value of R is 8.314 J/(mol K). Table 1 presents estimated values for the parameters of the three equations ( ...

# Electromigration

Electromigration is the transport of material caused by the gradual movement of the ions in a conductor due to the momentum transfer between conducting electrons and diffusing metal atoms. The effect is important in applications where high direct current densities are used, such as in microelectronics and related structures. As the structure size in electronics such as integrated circuits (ICs) decreases, the practical significance of this effect increases.
