Microstructure of Nanocrystalline Nickel Deposit Pulse-Plated on Depleted Uranium Surface
Microstructure of nickel deposit ,which was prepared with pulse-plating technology on depleted uranium surface, has been studied by X-ray diffractometry（XRD）,Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results indicate that the crystallographic structure of the deposit is face centered cubic; the deposit has a highly preferred orientation of (200), the relative orientation density of (200) is 3.44; the average grain size is about 45.5nm. The deposit is fine and has multi-crystal nature as well as crystallographic defects as dislocation, stacking and twin. It’s feasible to prepare nanocrystalline nickel deposit on depleted uranium surface with pulse plating technology.
