Abstract: An electrochemical reaction is a complex phenomenon influenced by the materials of electrodes, electric field, and the solution. This paper reports a fundamental study of a nano-processing method based on electrochemical phenomena. In this study, reaction on the entire surface of the workpiece is inhibited by maintaining its electrode potential using a potentiostat. A minuscule tool electrode is made to approach the surface and a voltage is applied between the workpiece and the tool. The voltage enhances a st…
