A fundamental study on the effect of deformation on the electrochemical behavior of polarized metallic electrodes in aqueous solution has been conducted. The study was successful in developing a novel technique for studying the electrochemical behavior of the electrodes under static or cyclic deformation. The development of the tecinique was established based on incorporating experimental methods of electrochemistry and with those of holographic interferometry. In other words, the new technique is capable of simultaneously measuring the anodic or cathodic current of the electrodes as a function of static or cyclic deformations in term of interference fringes. As a result, a relationship between deformation and current was developed for a number of metallic electrodes/aqueous solution systems. Data on Nickel electrodes in iN H2S04 and Molybdenum electrodes in O.75N KU will be presented at the meeting. For further details on the technique, the reader is strongly encouraged to refer to the literature elsewhere.
