Abstract

Operating conditions for the production of thin coatings of ruthenium–cobalt alloys have already been achieved. The present work provides data on the electrodeposition of modulated ruthenium–cobalt alloys using a sulfate–sulfamate electrolyte and a double-current pulse plating technique. Alloy modulation was examined by glow discharge optical spectroscopy. Coulometric measurements during anodic dissolution of cobalt–ruthenium films make it possible to determine exactly the cobalt content and approximate amount of ruthenium in the films.
