Electroless Copper and Nickel-Phosphorus Plating: Processing, Characterisation and Modellingby Wei Sha
Synopses & Reviews
Unlike electroplating, electroless plating allows uniform deposits of coating materials over all surfaces, regardless of size, shape and electrical conductivity. Electroless copper and nickel-phosphorus deposits provide protective and functional coatings in industries as diverse as electronics, automotive, aerospace and chemical engineering. This book discusses the latest research in electroless depositions.
After an introductory chapter, part one focuses on electroless copper depositions reviewing such areas as surface morphology and residual stress, modeling surface structure, adhesion strength of electroless copper deposit, electrical resistivity and applications of electroless copper deposits. Part two goes on to look at electroless nickel-phosphorus depositions with chapters on the crystallization of nickel-phosphorus deposits, modeling the thermodynamics and kinetics of crystallization of nickel-phosphorus deposits, artificial neural network (ANN) modeling of crystallization temperatures, hardness evolution of nickel-phosphorus deposits and applications of electroless nickel-phosphorus plating.
Book News Annotation:
Sha (materials science, Queen's U. Belfast) and colleagues Xiaomin Wu in the Netherlands and Kin Ghee Keong in Malaysia explain how the chemical reaction between a reducing agent and a metal salt in a liquid solution can reduce the metal ion to a metal atom on a substrate. Such plating can be uniform over all surfaces regardless of size, shape, and electrical conductivity. The main applications are in printed circuit board manufacturing, very-large or ultra-large scale integrated technology, electromagnetic shielding, and decorative plating. Looking first at copper plating, they consider such topics as surface morphology evolution, and the atomic model of the diamond pyramid structure, electrical resistivity. Then they discuss nickel-phosphorus depositions from such perspectives as the crystallization of deposits with high phosphorus content, and the artificial neural network modeling of crystallization temperatures.
