Improvement of adhesion of TiN coatings on stainless steel substrates by high energy heavy ion irradiation
The performance of tribological coatings depends greatly on the adhesion of the coating to the substrate. Various techniques are known for surface modification. Ion irradiation is a technique which has been used to modify ...
Toughening of thin films by high energy ion beams
Refractory metal films tend to grow with a high degree of intrinsic tensile stress. As the film thickness increases, the integrated stress becomes high enough to cause loss of adhesion. In the present study, when chromium ...
