Growth of ZnO Nanorod Arrays on Flexible PDMS Substrates
In this work, well-aligned zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods were successfully deposited on flexible polydimethyl-siloxane (PDMS) substrates by a simple hydrothermal growth method. The low temperature (<100°C) synthesized ZnO nanorods were investigated by s...

Stripping Metallic Coatings
The stripping of electrodeposited and flame-sprayed coatings is a necessary part of surface finishing. Stripping may be required to allow for the re-plating of a part rejected due to defective finishing or as part of rework processes such as those c...

Characterization of Electroless Deposition of Ni-P-Al2O3 and Ni-P-TiO2 from Alkaline Hypophosphite Baths in the Presence of Gluconate as a Complexing Agent
Electroless deposition of Ni-P-Al2O3 and Ni-P-TiO2, in the presence of gluconate as a complexing agent, on copper substrates was studied. The dependence of the composite formation on different plating variables was investigated. The deposited coatin...

Investigation of Tin Whisker Formation
Immersion tin and lead-free hot air solder leveling (HASL) coatings based on SnCu or SnAgCu alloys are widely used as surface finish materials for printed circuit boards (PCB). These coatings prevent the underlying copper from corrosion and preserve...

An Overview of Hard Chromium Plating Using Trivalent Chromium Solutions
For more than forty years, academic and industrial researchers from all over the world have taken a strong interest in alternative processes for hard chromium plating using hexavalent ions. The benefits of substitute processes are obvious, as the t...
