Electroplating of Carbon Nanotube Yarns and Tapes with Five Metals

Carbon nanotube (CNT) tapes and yarns can reduce the weight of industrial cables for aviation and space by substituting for copper. In order to attach CNTs to connectors, one high-reliability method of attachment is soldering, which is difficult; however it can be facilitated by electroplating. In this study, CNT tapes and yarns were plated with Cu, Ag, Ni, Sn and Au.

Anodizing

The Behavior of Intermetallic Compounds in Aluminum during Sulfuric Acid Anodizing Part 2: Al-Cu, Al-Mg, Al-Si, Al-Ti, Al-Fe-Si, Al-Zn-Mg Alloys

The 1971 Carl E. Huessner Gold Medal Award was given to J. Cote and co-workers for the Best Paper appearing in Plating or the AES Technical Proceedings in 1970. Actually a two-part paper beginning in 1969, the second installment of the paper from 1970 is republished here in a series on the AES/AESF/NASF Best Paper Awards. Their work presents very important work on how the anodizing process reacts with the other materials alloyed in with commercial aluminum grades.
