Abstract

Selective metallization is a widely used procedure which is usually achieved by the metal deposition and photolithography processes. The present research outlines a possible alternative to traditional methodologies enabling decreased processing time and a more environmentally friendly approach. A gradient magnetic field is applied during catalyst deposition on a non-conductive substrate so that the subsequent metal plating occurs at the required pattern. A new type of magnetic catalyst was synthesized and used for substrate surface activation. The characterization of both the magnetic catalyst and the selectively metallized non-conductive material are presented in this work.
