Metal electroplating is of great significance in various industries such as electronics, sensors and optics, traditionally the process was performed in aqueous solution. However, they suffer a number of drawbacks such as poor deposit quality for some metals and environmental concerns [1]. The ionic liquid can overcome these limitations by aqueous solution [2]. In addition, the plating process can also be improved by applying pulse current instead of conventional direct current [3]. Therefore, it is worthy to investigate the combination effect of the utilization of both ionic liquid and pulse current in metal deposition.
