A homemade electrodeposition device is presented, capable of depositing thin films of variable stoichiometry on cylindrical substrates offering control of electrolysis current, temperature and stirring velocity. The device design eliminates gravitational settling and uses a novel technique for fluid agitation in order to optimize deposition uniformity. The device surpasses traditional burato-style design in terms of gravitational settling of the solution and stirring homogeneity, as well as in terms of coating quality, i.e. cracking and blackened areas.
