Microstructural investigation on the grain refinement occurring in Cu-doped Ni-Ti thin films
The mechanism of grain refinement in Cu-doped Ni-Ti thin films have been investigated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Sputter deposited (Ni,Cu)-rich Ni-Ti-Cu thin films exhibited a columnar structure consisting ...
Adsorption of bovine serum albumin on Zr co-sputtered a-C(:H) films: implication on wear behaviour
The use of protective coatings in biomedical field is an ongoing scientific challenge. Among different materials, carbon-based coatings are considered a potential surface treatment for orthopaedic implants. In this study, ...
Complex frictional analysis of self-lubricant W-S-C/Cr coating
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012)
Transition metal dichalcogenides belong to one of the most developed classes of materials for solid lubrication. However, one of the main drawbacks of most of the self-lubricating coatings is their low load-bearing capacity, ...
Nanoscale colour control: W–O graded coatings deposited by magnetron sputtering
(IOP Publishing, 2008)
A new design of decorative tungsten oxide coatings is presented. The coatings were deposited with gradient refraction index by magnetron sputtering from a tungsten target and pulsing the reactive gas. The controlled injection ...
