Au/Co multilayers were electrodeposited from a single bath based on acid citrate, cobalt sulphate and gold cyanide electrolyte. The Taguchi statistical method was used for experiment planning and optimisation. X-ray diffraction (XRD) investigations of the structure showed that the Au deposits exhibited a polycrystalline fcc 〈1 1 1〉 structure with an estimated grain size of ∼7 nm, while the Co deposits exhibited a nano-polycrystalline fcc structure with an estimated grain size ranging between 2… CONTINUE READING
