Suppression of Tin Whiskers in Lead-Free Solder: Improved electronics reliability by surpressing whiskers that can cause short circuits and arcing in electrical circuits

Scientists at the Savannah River National Laboratory have identified a treatment method that slows or prevents the formation of whiskers in lead-free solder. The current stage of research has shown initial time studies in comparison to a base-line that whisker formation is minimized or almost...
