Effects of atomic structure on the frictional properties of amorphous carbon coatings
Surface and Coatings Technology 263:8 (2015)We found, both the carbon bonding network and the carbon hybridization have significant effect on the frictional properties of DLC films. The unsaturated carbon atoms, which are in sp2 or sp1 hybridization, can lead to the formation of covalent bonds between the two contacting surfaces resulting in...
Wear and corrosion behavior of laser surface engineered AISI H13 hot working tool steel
Surface and Coatings Technology 261:69 (2015)The present study reports the effect of laser parameters on the microstructure, and consequently, the wear resistance of laser surface engineered (hardening and melting) AISI H13 tool steel (in hardened and tempered condition) substrate. The microstructure of the laser surface hardened zon...
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...
Investigation of C/Al–Cr–N multilayer coatings for stainless steel bipolar plate in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells
Surface and Coatings Technology 258:1068 (2014)To improve the corrosion resistance and surface conductivity of stainless steel bipolar plate, C/Al–Cr–N multilayer coatings with varying Al:Cr target current are deposited on stainless steel 316L (SS316L) by magnetron sputtering. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) results show that the co...
