Materials exhibiting unique mechanical, physical and chemical properties can be obtained by combining thin layers of different metals or alloys forming a multilayered structure. Two general techniques exist for electrodepositing composition-modulated alloy (CMA) materials; dual-bath and single-bath plating. For both techniques a number of variations exist. The most suitable technique and variation for the manufacture of a certain CMA material is highly dependent on the metals included in the given CMA system and on the dimensions of the multilayered structure. In this paper, the main principles of the two electrochemical techniques and their variants are discussed.
