Could there be benefits to fabricating alloys, “quasi-alloys” and heterogenous conductor materials by a method of applying (in plethorae) platings of differing metals (perhaps in specific periodic orders) to construct macroscopic conductors or radial parts thereof?
I’m not sure where goes the line between such a heterogenous structure and what might be considered an alloy due to plating thickness.
Could this be used to tailor conductors whose skin-effect becomes (even more) negligible in the audio band? For example.
Now, why I would primarily like to distinguish such hypothetical composite materials from ordinary alloys is that, as I understand it, an alloy will always be inferior in terms of its lattice where imperfections caused by dissimilar atoms in non-perfect alignment would essentially create “distortion” (or something along those lines)
This technique, if applicable, might allow for what could essentially be considered alloys (for minimal thickness plating) but within which we’d have individual pure continuous bands of each constituent.
If this would in practice be ultimately expensive and time-consuming, do tell. Still, hypothesize on the possible properties.
