Abstract

A new Matlab-based software suite called Tilt-A-Whirl has been applied to XRD data from textured gold films electro-deposited onto nickel substrates. The software routines facilitate phase identification, texture analysis via pole figure visualization, and macrostrain determination. The use of principal component analysis with multivariate curve resolution (PCA/MCR) revealed the extraction of texture components. The unusual hardness properties of one Au film (deposited from a 30% gold depleted BDT-200 bath) were found to be dependent on the (210) out-of-plane preferred orientation of the polycrystalline gold film. The progressive nucleation of Au crystallites during electro-plating has been tied to improved hardness properties of this film.
