    The influence of anodic oxide on the electron concentration near the GaO- n-GaAs interface is studied. The coordinate distribution of electrons is obtained as a function of anodizing voltage, duration of treatment of oxide films in oxygen plasma, temperature, and annealing time. A decrease in...

    The electroplating of copper onto 7005Al/Al2O3(P) metal matrix composites (Al MMC) is difficult but becomes feasible if the composites have been preanodized in mineral acids. It is clear that phosphoric (P) acid anodizing is better than oxalic (O) or sulfuric (S) acid anodizing when the...

    Measurements on anodic surface oxidation of noble metals as a function of time and electrode potential show that the initial extension and subsequent thickening of such oxide films is directly logarithmic in time. A striking feature of this behavior is that the direct logarithmic extension law...
