Analysis of in situ XRD measurements for low energy ion beam nitriding of austenitic stainless steel
Surface and Coatings Technology 256:64 (2014)The formation of expanded austenite after nitrogen insertion into austenitic stainless steel, CoCr or Ni base alloys is still not completely understood. Ex situ X-ray diffraction (XRD) investigations, which can be very sophisticated nowadays, lack the exact time evolution while additional...
Kinetics of plasma species and their ionization in short-HiPIMS by particle modeling
Surface and Coatings Technology 255:52 (2014)The ionization efficiency of High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering (HiPIMS) discharges is the key parameter leading to (i) gas ion production and consequently controlling the sputtering effectiveness and (ii) sputtered vapor ionization, self-consistently linked to self-sputtering and thi...
Electroless deposition and evaluation of Cu/multiwalled carbon nanotube composite films on acrylonitrile butadiene styrene resin
Surface and Coatings Technology 254:224 (2014)Cu/multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) composite films were fabricated by electroless deposition on acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resin substrates. Four types of MWCNTs with different dimensions were added to the electroless copper plating baths together with the dispersants sodium...
Effect of TGO creep on top-coat cracking induced by cyclic displacement instability in a thermal barrier coating system
Surface and Coatings Technology 254:410 (2014)I crack, whereas the shear stress is predominant around the periphery of the instability zone and causes a mode II crack. Both the tensile and shear stresses can be reduced by TGO creep which restrains the morphology distortion of the instability zone during thermal cycling. Furthermore, TGO creep c...
Enhanced field emission properties of PECVD synthesized chlorine doped diamond like carbon thin films
Surface and Coatings Technology 253:1 (2014)Chlorine doped diamond like carbon (DLC) has been deposited for the first time on both Si and glass substrate by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition using acetylene and carbon tetrachloride as the source for carbon and chlorine respectively. The Chlorine concentration is varied from...
Suppression effect of decarburization by dry-ice blasting on plasma-sprayed steel coatings: Structure, wear performance and magnetic propert...
Surface and Coatings Technology 253:44 (2014)Steel coatings prepared by atmospheric thermal spraying with dry-ice blasting were studied in terms of phase structure, magnetic and wear behaviors. It was found that dry-ice blasting could suppress the volatilization of carbon during spraying process due to the exclusion effect of carbon...
The adhesion and corrosion resistance of Ti–O films on CoCrMo alloy fabricated by high power pulsed magnetron sputtering (HPPMS)
Surface and Coatings Technology 252:8 (2014)In order to explore the potential application on cardiovascular stent, titanium oxide films were fabricated on CoCrMo alloy substrate by high power pulsed magnetron sputtering (HPPMS). The effect of Ti interlayer and thickness of Ti–O film on the film adhesion was investigated by the scrat...
Atmospheric plasma synthesized PEG coatings: non-fouling biomaterials showing protein and cell repulsion
Surface and Coatings Technology 252:126 (2014)We developed two original methods to obtain such coatings at atmospheric pressure, in which tetra(ethylene glycol) dimethyl ether (tetraglyme) is injected either as a liquid or as a vapor, in the post-discharge of a RF torch. These are referred to as atmospheric pressure plasma liquid deposition (AP...
Anodization of NiTi alloy in an ethylene glycol electrolyte
Surface and Coatings Technology 252:142 (2014)In this paper, anodization of NiTi was carried out in a viscous fluorine ion containing ethylene glycol electrolyte, with the objective of investigating the influence of anodization conditions on the surface properties. The surface morphologies and chemical compositions of the anodized NiT...
Chitosan/carbonated hydroxyapatite composite coatings: Fabrication, structure and biocompatibility
Surface and Coatings Technology 251:210 (2014)Chitosan/carbonated hydroxyapatite composite coatings (CCHCs) were fabricated according to the following steps: (i) preparation of calcium carbonate coatings (CCCs) on Ti6Al4V substrates by electrophoretic deposition; (ii) transformation of CCCs into carbonated hydroxyapatite coatings (CHA...
