Effects of Hot Rolling on Microstructures and Magnetic Properties

We electroplated copper-cobalt thin films on a silicon substrate, which had 150 nm thick copper seed layer. The adhesion between the two metallic layers could be increased by utilizing a proper organic additive, pulse plating technique, and high temperature annealing. The thin films exhibited columnar growth of the deposits and enhanced adhesion. This is attributed to the grain growth mechanism introduced by the additive and annealing.
