Fundamental:

  • Structure of the metal/solution interface.
  • Specific adsorption, the configuration of adsorbed species at the interface.
  • Evaluation of the mechanism of anomalous alloy deposition.
  • Studying the properties of non-aqueous and mixed solvents.

Applied:

  • Electroplating of Ni/W and similar alloys for protection (of turbine blades)
    against high-temperature corrosion and erosion.
  • Electroplating of thin-film barrier layers for the micro-electronic industry.
  • Improving methods of plating copper and its alloys into sub-micron features
    for use in ULSI technology.
  • Development of methods for the electroplating of magnetic materials for application in Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS).
