Investigation of the nanostructure and wear properties of physical vapor deposited CrCuN nanocomposite coatings
Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology. A. Vacuum, Surfaces, and Films
This paper presents results on the PVD CrCuN nanocomposite coating system, in which the immiscibility of Cr (containing a supersaturation of nitrogen) and Cu offers the potential of a predominantly metallic (and therefore tough) nanocomposite, composed of small Cr(N) metallic and/or β-Cr 2 N ceramic grains interdispersed in a (minority) Cu matrix. A range of CrCuN compositions have been deposited using a hot-filament enhanced unbalanced magnetron sputtering system. The stoichiometry anddoi:10.1116/1.1875212 fatcat:ctcllutdinf3ref3363ptuurrq
