The Electrodeposition of Nanostructured Ni-TiN Composite Films
The Ni-TiN nanocomposite films have been successfully fabricated onto commercial brass copper substrates using dc electroplating technique, and the microstructure and anti-corrosion properties of the optimized Ni-TiN nanocomposite have been respectively characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results show that the morphology of Ni-TiN composite film is sensitively dependent on the electroplating current density, the concentration of TiN nanoparticles, the solution stirring speed, the bath temperature and the solution pH value.
