    Solders are used as interconnect materials in microelectronic packaging. Traditionally, eutectic and near-eutectic Pb-Sn solder alloys have been used. Due to the toxic nature of lead, environmentally-benign Sn-rich (Pb-free) solders are being developed. In this two part series of articles, we...
