Maskless deposition of nickel lines on single crystalline Mn-Zn ferrite (MnO:ZnO:Fe2O3=31:17:52) has been investigated in a NiSO4 aqueous solution by Ar+ laser irradiation. A high deposition rate of up to 36.4μm/s was achieved by a single scan of laser beam. The purity of deposited nickel layers is up to 86%. In particular, well-defined values of laser power and laser irradiation time were necessary for effective deposition. The deposition process was found to be a thermochemical process.
