Cathodic Polarization Behavior and Deposit Structure of Jet Electrodeposition Nickel
The influences of jet flow rate and temperature on cathodic polarization of nickel deposits have been studied in this paper. The results indicate that increasing jet flow rate and temperature of the electrolyte make the equilibrium electrode potential decrease. When jet flow rate increases from 1.0 L/min to 6.0 L/min, the grain size of nickel deposits decreases from 22.6 nm to 18.9 nm. X-ray diffraction patterns show that increasing jet flow rate results in (111) preferred growth orientation for nickel deposits.
