Electrodeposition of Bi in magnetic gradient fields was performed from two different electrolytes. The first electrolyte contained only diamagnetic Bi3+-ions; the second one additionally contained electrochemically inert paramagnetic Mn2+-ions. While homogeneous Bi deposits were obtained from the former, structured Bi layers were derived from the latter. The structured deposits show an inverse correlation between deposit thickness and superimposed magnetic field gradient. Minima of film… CONTINUE READING
