Study of the electrochemical behaviour of aluminized steel
Surface and Coatings Technology 260:34 (2014)Although Al-based coatings are already being applied industrially, the electrochemical behaviour of the different intermetallic layers formed during hot dipping still remains under debate. In order to study the electrochemical behaviour of the different layers with respect to each other th...
Room temperature nanoindentation creep of nanograined NiTiW shape memory alloy thin films
Surface and Coatings Technology 260:260 (2014)In this paper, the creep behaviors of NiTiW thin films at various W contents (2.6–33.6%) were investigated using the nanoindentation creep testing method. With W content ranging from 2.6at.% to 4.5at.%, the films are strengthened and exhibit a much reduced strain rate ϵ˙=6.76×10−4s−1 indic...
Niobium nitride thin films deposited by high temperature chemical vapor deposition
Surface and Coatings Technology 260:126 (2014)We discuss the role of an AlN layer as a possible protective layer of the sapphire for the synthesis of fcc δ-NbN....

Highly conductive SnO2 thin films deposited by atomic layer deposition using tetrakis-dimethyl-amine-tin precursor and ozone reactant
Surface and Coatings Technology 259:238 (2014)Highly conductive SnO2 thin films were grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) in a wide growth temperature range (50°C–250°C), using a tetrakis-dimethyl-amine tin (TDMASn) precursor and an ozone reactant. The ozone SnO2 ALD thin films showed excellent electrical properties (5.63×10−4Ωcm) o...
Friction and wear reduction of hard TiAlSiN coatings by an integrated approach of laser surface texturing and high-energy ion implantation
Surface and Coatings Technology 259:136 (2014)We used an integrated approach to reduce the friction and wear of hard TiAlSiN coatings. Firstly, dimples were introduced to substrate surface by a Nd:YAG laser. Secondly, TiAlSiN coatings were prepared on the textured surfaces by magnetron sputtering technique. Finally, high energy ion implantation...
Preparation and characterization of micropatterned prussian blue thin films with enhanced electrochromic properties
Surface and Coatings Technology 259:330 (2014)Micropatterned prussian blue thin films on indium tin oxide conducting glass were prepared by electrostatic field-assisted potentiostatic deposition and their electrochromic properties were investigated in this study. Scanning electron microscope and optical microscope images confirmed the...
Role of SiC nanowire coating on oxidation behavior of carbon fibers: Kinetic and thermodynamic study
Surface and Coatings Technology 259:637 (2014)The oxidation kinetics of SiC nanowire coated carbon fibers in oxygen atmosphere were studied through isothermal thermo-gravimetric analysis and dynamic thermo-gravimetric analysis. The isothermal weight loss curve showed two activation energies for the oxidation of SiC nanowire coated car...
Determination of temperature distribution within polyurethane substrates during deposition of flame-sprayed aluminum–12silicon coatings usin...
Surface and Coatings Technology 259:625 (2014)Deposition of coatings on polymer-based substrates by using the thermal spraying process is a challenging task due to the thermal sensitivity of polymer materials and the high temperatures that are typical of thermal spraying processes. Thus, prediction of the temperature distribution in t...
Energetically deposited nano-composite films of high speed steel and titanium nitride
Surface and Coatings Technology 259:495 (2014)A filtered cathodic vacuum arc system has been used to reactively deposit nano-composite high speed steel (HSS)-TiN films from a cold-sprayed HSS-Ti cathode. The microstructure of the films depended on both the energy of the depositing flux (controlled by substrate bias) and the substrate...
