  1. 1. Transition Metal Nitrides : Alloy Design and Surface Transport Properties using Ab-initio and Classical Computational Methods

    Author : Davide G. Sangiovanni; Valeriu Chirita; Lars Hultman; Paul Mayrhofer; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Enhanced toughness in brittle ceramic materials, such as transition metal nitrides (TMN), is achieved by optimizing the occupancy of shear-sensitive metallic electronic-states. This is the major result of my theoretical research, aimed to solve an inherent long-standing problem for hard ceramic protective coatings: brittleness. READ MORE
