About the book

In the coating technology, electrodeposition is a versatile route to prepare the thin film through an electrolyte bath solution containing sources salts. The potentiostatic and galvanostatic mode of operations can be performed by the necessity of the film deposition. The huge range of film thickness from nanometer to several micrometers, can be coated by the electrodeposition process. A large number of metals, including precious metals like gold, platinum, copper, nickel and silver and some of the rare alloy compositions such as Co-Ni, Sn–Ni, Co-Ni-Fe, Au–Co, Co–P, Ni–Fe, Ni–P and etc., succeeded by electrodeposition.
This book plans to focus on elaborating recent advances in the field of electrodeposition with fruitful evidence. The feasibility of electrodeposition routes to fabricate different metals and their derivatives for various uses are to be explained in detail.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
