Potential oscillation was observed during the template-free galvanostatic deposition in the 58/42 mol% AlCl3/trimethylamine hydrochloride ionic liquid, and resulted in the formation of unique periodic (accordion-like) aluminum wires with variable periodicity and diameter controlled by the deposition current density. Factors leading to this phenomenon are postulated.
