Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The influence of heat treatment on the microstructure and the microtexture of electrodeposited Ni and Ni-Co layers was investigated with Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) with high resolution. Samples were annealed for 1 hour at 523 K and 673 K, the temperature region wherein recrystallisation occurs. The results are discussed in relation to the resolution of EBSD for the very fine grained electrodeposits and previous X-ray diffraction investigations.
