Abstract: This report describe research into the role that surface topography plays in influencing the mechanical bond strength of the electroless copper plating of novel glass substrates. The work considers bespoke laser machining of glass substrates, electroless plating chemistry, areal surface topography analysis using non-contact optical techniques, paramaterization of the surfaces using ISO 25178 areal parameters, and scratch testing of plated copper to measure the adhesive bond strength. By correlating bond strength to appropriate areal parameters, it is anticipated that better mechanical adhesive potential of machined glass surfaces can be achieved.
