## Thin Multilayer Palladium Coatings for Semiconductor Packaging Applications Part I: Solderability

The 1996 AES Gold Medal Award was given to I.V. Kadija and his co-workers for the Best Paper appearing in Plating and Surface Finishing in 1995. Their work dealt with the use of palladium in electronics finishing in the 1990s. This paper covered the evaluation of such finishes for solderability.

## Some Practical and Theoretical Considerations of Corrosion and the Role of Chromium - The 12th William Blum Lecture

This paper is a re-publication of the 12th William Blum Lecture, presented at the 58th AES Annual Convention in Buffalo, New York, on June 14, 1971. The corrosion of plated coatings under varying environmental conditions, including the effect of polarity, porosity, combination of plate, as well as thickness and other factors on the durability of the plated product is covered.

## 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.
