This dataset constitutes the output from a novel workflow for accelerating the multimodal characterization of a combinatorial set of 915 electroplated Ni and Ni-Fe thin films, as outlined in accompanying paper “A Workflow for Accelerating Multimodal Data Collection for Electrodeposited Films.” Approximately four films were created for each unique set of process conditions. These process conditions span seven different chemical bath solutions (and one repeated solution with the addition of agitation), and current densities varied between 1 and 200 mA/cm^2. The in-situ voltage time series data for these electrodepositions is included to capture process information. Six characterization modalities are represented: X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, nanoindentation, optical microscopy, laser profilometry, and tribological (friction and wear) testing.
