All,

I am of the opinion that electromigration is very different from dendrite formation. Is it different or one & the same. Anyone have any feedback on this?

Here�s background on: * Electromigration: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromigration

* Dendrite: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dendrite_(crystal)

For us, electromigration is the electrochemical process that creates dendrites.

As a bonus, here's a link to an article on conductive anode filament [CAF]: http://www.empf.org/empfasis/2007/Jan07/cond.html
