Multilayered foils with 10%Cu/90%Ni and different bi-layer thickness (100-1000 nm) have been fabricated by electrodeposition. TEM and x-ray diffraction analysis indicate discrete layer formation and a (100) textured structure. The maximum tensile strength (590 MPa) is obtained for foils with the smallest layer thickness. Preliminary results on high temperature deformation show a strong dependence of strength and plasticity on layer thickness.
