Modern plating technology is highly advanced, and has developed to cover a wide range of applications. In addition to the traditional use for surface finishing, plating technology can now offer novel processes to fabricate high-performance films or fine microstructural bodies in the microelectronics industry. This rapid progress reflects the potential for the electroplating plating method to become one of today's leading-edge technologies. This book will introduce a concept of a Microstructure Control Theory for plated films, describe and discuss various experimental results that support the theory, and finally, present a collection of experimental data on 53 types of plated metal/alloy systems with a special emphasis on their microstructure.The unique feature of this database is that most of the plating baths are simple and contain no additives. In addition, amorphous materials were used as substrates to avoid the effects of substrate structure, and single-crystal substrates were chosen to study the epitaxial growth phenomenon.
Contains a comprehensive database for the microstructure of plated films
The book is very logically structured with a very detailed contents which makes finding information easy
The book gives a very good overview of the research and development in this field and each chapter is fully referenced
academic or research based scientists who are primarily concerned with thin film coatings, and those working in the field of solid state physics and electronic devices or components

For many years Tohru Watanabe worked with Tokyo Metropolitan University in the Department of Applied Chemistry. Currently he engaged in technical consulting in electrochemical engineering and technology with the Watanabe Nano-Plating Laboratory. For 33 years he organised the Nanoplating Study Group that held 134 meetings in that period. He published many articles in international scientific journals, several conference papers, and is the author of the book Nano-Plating that was published with Elsevier in 2004. He also published some books in Japanese. The author has five decades of experience in metal electrodeposition and their structural investigation in which field he is a recognised expert. Tohru Watanabe graduated from Shibaura Institute of Technology. Thereafter he became associate researcher with the Department of Industrial Chemistry, Faculty of Engineering, Tokyo Metropolitan University. In 1976 be obtained a doctoral degree in Engineering from Tokyo Metropolitan University. Then he was visiting researcher, University of Sussex, UK, associate professor, Department of Applied Chemistry, Tokyo Metropolitan University, visiting professor, Beijing Chemical University, lecturer, Shibaura Institute of Technology, Graduate School, and Faculty of Science and Engineering, Chuo University, and researcher, Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Research Center.
