-Corrosion on the First Edition of Fundamentals of Electrochemical Deposition
From computer hardware to automobiles, medical diagnostics to aerospace, electrochemical deposition plays a crucial role in an array of key industries. Fundamentals of Electrochemical Deposition, Second Edition is a comprehensive introduction to one of today's most exciting and rapidly evolving fields of practical knowledge.
The most authoritative introduction to the field so far, the book presents detailed coverage of the full range of electrochemical deposition processes and technologies, including:
* Metal-solution interphase
* Charge transfer across an interphase
* Formation of an equilibrium electrode potential
* Nucleation and growth of thin films
* Kinetics and mechanisms of electrodeposition
* Electroless deposition
* In situ characterization of deposition processes
* Structure and properties of deposits
* Multilayered and composite thin films
* Interdiffusion in thin film
* Applications in the semiconductor industry and the field of medicine
This new edition updates the prior edition to address the new developments in the science and its applications, with new chapters on innovative applications of electrochemical deposition in semiconductor technology, magnetism and microelectronics, and medical instrumentation. Added coverage includes such topics as binding energy, nanoclusters, atomic force, and scanning tunneling microscopy.Example problems at the end of chapters and other features clarify and improve understanding of the material.
Written by an author team with extensive experience in both industry and academe, this reference and text provides a well-rounded introduction to the field for students, as well as a means for professional chemists, engineers, and technicians to expand and sharpen their skills in using the technology.
With advances in information-age technologies, the field of electroplating has seen dramatic growth in the decade since the previous edition of Modern Electroplating was published. This expanded new edition addresses these developments, providing a comprehensive, one-stop reference to the latest methods and applications of electroplating of metals, alloys, semiconductors, and conductive polymers.
With special emphasis on electroplating and electrochemical plating in nanotechnologies, data storage, and medical applications, the Fifth Edition boasts vast amounts of new and revised material, unmatched in breadth and depth by any other book on the subject. It includes:
Easily accessible, self-contained contributions by over thirty experts
Five completely new chapters and hundreds of additional pages
A cutting-edge look at applications in nanoelectronics
Coverage of the formation of nanoclusters and quantum dots using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM)
An important discussion of the physical properties of metal thin films
Chapters devoted to methods, tools, control, and environmental issues
And much more
A must-have for anyone in electroplating, including technicians, platers, plating researchers, and metal finishers, Modern Electroplating, Fifth Edition is also an excellent reference for electrical engineers and researchers in the automotive, data storage, and medical industries.
The aim of the volume is to help provide understanding of electrochemical phenomena and materials at the nanoscale through modeling and numeric simulations. It is also designed to serve as a means to create and use structures.
