Abstract

In a known dendrite connector system, the interface between the palladi dendrite and the surface of the underlying metal on which it is deposited is extremely small, e.g., less than 1 micron, and hence is very fragile.

Dendrite Connector System with Reinforced Base

In a known dendrite connector system, the interface between the palladi dendrite and the surface of the underlying metal on which it is deposited is extremely small, e.g., less than 1 micron, and hence is very fragile.

The present connector system electrodeposits tin on the surface of the dendrite elements and subsequently reflows the tin. As a result, the tin forms around the base of the dendrite at the interface, thereby reinforcing the dendrite and interface connection.
