A new technique using energetic ion beams has been developped for depositing advanced coatings resulting in improved properties for tribological and corrosion protection applications. Hard coatings relatively thick (1 - 2 µm) have been produced by combining a physical vapor deposition method with simultaneous ion bombardment using a high energy ion beam (100 - 400 KeV) called Dynarnic ion mixing(DIM). One of the most important features of this technique is to produce interface mixing at room temperature which results in a broad interface of graded composition with excellent adhesion. Different types of hard coatings : TB2, SiC, NiTi(N) have been produced by DIM on different substrates (silicon, steel, TA6V) and the influence of the ion mixing effect on their structure, mechanical, tribological and corrosion properties has been studied. The chemical composition and depth profiles have been determined by RBS and SIMS ; density measurements are performed by X-Ray reflectometry and the microstructure and phase characterization is obîained by TEM, HRTEM and XRD. Scratch tests have been conducted for controling the adhesion performance as well as friction and wear experiments with a conventional pin-on-disk system. For all these coatings the enhancement of crystallization and densification as well as increased adhesion and wear resistance improvement were commonly observed features. The influence of SiC coatings on the corrosion protection of an AISI 321 sîainless steel in 1N H2SO4 was also studied by means of cyclic voltametry investigations. It has been observed that the corrosion resistance of SiC coated stainless steel is considerably improved by DIM. The structure modifications and improved properties will be discussed in relation with the mixing effects in collision cascades.

Comment afficher un lien OpenURL ?

La norme OpenURL est un protocole de transmission de métadonnées permettant de décrire la ressource à laquelle vous souhaitez accéder.

Il s'agit de construire un lien contenant les métadonnées et pointant vers le serveur OpenURL de votre choix. Ce serveur OpenURL peut alors par exemple indiquer l'accessibilité de la ressource, proposer des services complémentaires (recherche, export de référence...). Un tel lien peut être généré selon des moyens différents :

  • Si la bibliothèque gérant votre abonnement a défini un serveur OpenURL pour ses utilisateurs, les liens OpenURL apparaissent automatiquement sur les pages appelées.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • Vous pouvez utiliser un module complémentaire pour votre navigateur (Firefox ou I.E.) qui permet d'afficher les liens OpenURL présents dans une page (voir Vous devrez désactiver ce module si vous souhaitez utiliser le serveur OpenURL que vous avez défini ou celui de votre bibliothèque.
