The effects of the external magnetic field presence on the electrocrystallization of Fe/Ni alloy have been investigated. It is reported that the magnetic field superposed perpendicular to the electrode surface has an influence on the Fe/Ni alloy growth. It is found that the Fe content increases over the entire Fe/Ni solution deposition and the layer morphology strongly depends on the bath composition. Samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray, X-ray fluorescence. Tables 2, Figs 3, Refs 58.
