What are some more advanced references about factors that affect copper deposition?

I'm interested in what factors effect Cu deposition in very small areas such as sub-micron topography, crystal growth, adhesion, and leveling. Electrical conductivity is of prime concern. Any reference material would be appreciated, or addresses where I can continue my research.

Richard C. Alkire, a chemical engineer at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has published many innovative papers on factors affecting electrodeposition. His website contains the full text of a keynote lecture entitled Electrodeposition and Dissolution of Copper, along with a paper reference list and links to electrochemical resources and research groups on the Web.

Try these references from the Proceedings of the Electrochemical Society:

For more general information on electrochemistry, see the The Electrochemical Science and Technology Information Resource sponsored by Case Western Reserve University. The site has a list of Web resources, newsgroups, mailing lists, and FAQs for electrochemists, with bibliographies including chapter reviews, books, proceedings, journals, and institutions.
