Comparison of experiments and theory. Time difference between γ-on profile and γ-off profile averaged between d = 6 nm and d = 12 nm as a function of sulfuric acid concentration. The red circle symbols are for Δq = 196 ion pairs cm−3 s−1 and blue circles are for Δq = 55 ion pairs cm−3 s−1. Error bars are the 1 std. dev. uncertainty. The red (blue) curve is the theoretical expectation based on Eqs. (7) and (8). Right-hand axis is the relative change in growth rate averaged between d = 6 nm and d = 12 nm, in %
