Title: Cathode system for electrodeposition of metals on microspheres

Abstract

The present disclosure relates to an apparatus for electroplating an element. The apparatus may comprise a cathode cage assembly. The cathode cage assembly may include a cage member and at least one electrically conductive wire extending along at least a portion of the cage member. The wire may be arranged to form at least one volume within the cage member for retaining an element within the cage member. The cage member and the wire permit a degree of movement of the element during an electroplating process while retaining the element within the volume.
