An in-situ STM study has been initiated to investigate the various processes associated with electrodeposition of Cu-(Ni, Co, Fe) multilayers. This paper gives an example of the remarkable utility of STM for imaging the structure and dynamics associated with electrodeposition processes. Specifically, the significant role of anion adsorption in homoepitaxial deposition on Cu(100) has been demonstrated.
