Analyzing the Differences in the Physical and Electrical Properties of Pure and Copper Coated Silver Nanoparticles

by Tyler Young
This project was designed to investigate the effects of coating pure silver nanoparticles with a layer of copper. Two types of powder were analyzed: a base powder of pure silver (used as a control) and silver powder that was copper coated. Some of the physical properties of these powders that were compared include microstructure and particle size distribution. Sintered parts were also tested for hardness and electrical conductivity.
