Amorphous alloys can be electrodeposited by direct or pulsed current. According to electrocrystallization theory, a high crystallization overpotential produces microcrystalline structure in the deposits. Thus if the amorphous phase consists of microcrystals, pulsed current is preferable for preparing amorphous alloys. However, another newly proposed theory holds that the amorphous phase structure is microcrystalline but icosahedral. This would mean that future study is needed effect of pulsed current.
