    "bright" Stannum

    Hi,

    When you use "bright" to modify "Sn", what does that mean?

    thanks.

    I'm not sure this is what you're after, but 'bright Sn' means a bright supernova;.

    PS- Stannum, I've just learned, is a name for the metal 'tin'. I'm afraid I'm a bit confused by this question.

    Sn is also the name for the element 'tin', so would 'bright' just mean 'shiny'?

    I also think that "shiny" would be better with "tin".

    I should've given more information.

    It's a translation task, something about Lead-Free Products. I don't know where is the author from. I DON'T understand his English. No verb and no grammar. :mad:

    Question 1
    SnCu plating is known to be a high risk for Sn whisker growth and should be avoided when possible (bright Sn is the highest risk and not acceptable for use in Dell products without consent).


    Question 2
    What is "Tin Whisker Risk Matrix"?

    BTW, the author also mentioned semi-bright Sn in his research. What is "semi-shiny"?

    50% dark and 50% shiny. Sounds weird to me.
