Abstract

Electrochemical methods for surface modification and materials processing play an important role in many modern technologies. Electrochemical fabrication techniques are becoming increasingly attractive for the deposition of new materials and novel microstructures. We report on property enhancements observed for electrochemically deposited Co and Ni nanowire arrays and Ni/Al2O3 nanocomposite films.
