  1. 1. The HiPIMS Process

    Author : Daniel Lundin; Ulf Helmersson; Nils Brenning; Jeffrey A. Hopwood; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis involves experimental and theoretical studies related to a thin film deposition technique called high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS), and more specifically the plasma properties and how they influence the coating. HiPIMS is an ionized physical vapor deposition technique based on conventional direct current magnetron sputtering (DCMS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Synthesis and Characterization of Transition Metal Diborides

    Author : Jimmy Thörnberg; Johanna Rosén; Per Persson; Helmut Riedl; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DCMS; HiPIMS; Titanium Diboride; Titanium Aluminum Diboride; Chromium Diboride; Microstructure; Hardness; Oxidation Resistance;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted towards physical vapor deposition (PVD) of thin films of transition-metal (TM) diborides, focused on the material system TiBx, Ti1-xAlxB2-y and CrBx. The metal diborides are a large family of compounds with both metallic and ceramic properties, due to its bonding nature being a mix of covalent and ionic bonds. READ MORE
