Corrosion protection of Cu by atomic layer deposition Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a vapor phase technique that is able to deposit uniform, conformal thin films with an excellent thickness control at the atomic scale. 18 nm thick Al2O3 and TiO2 coatings were deposited conformaly and pinhole-free onto micrometer-sized Cu powder, using trimethylaluminum and tetrakis(dimethylamido)titanium(IV), respectively, as a precursor and de-ionized water as a reactant. The capability of the ALD coating to ...
Electrochemical characterization of plasma coatings on printed circuit boards Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) are the backbone of electronic devices and communication technology. The corrosion of copper tracks in PCBs is the main reliability issue in case of exposure to humidity. To overcome this, several surface finishing methods have been introduced in the industry such as plasma coatings. In this study, several electrochemical characterisation methods are explored on blank and plasma-coated PCBs to identify reliable ...
