  1. 1. Characterization of metal plasma streams from arc discharges in a reactive environment

    Author : Johanna Rosén; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Alumina is a material used in many applications mainly due to its chemical inertness and wear resistance at high temperatures. Despite this, the understanding of alumina thin films is not satisfactory, as can be concluded from the diverging material properties reported in the literature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Multifunctional Transition-metal Diboride Coatings Synthesized by Magnetron sputtering with Synchronized Metal-ion Irradiation

    Author : Babak Bakhit; Grzegorz Greczynski; Johanna Rosén; Paul Mayrhofer; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Refractory transition-metal diborides (TMB2), classified as ultra-high temperature ceramics, are promising materials for extreme thermal and chemical environments. There is a growing demand for employing TMB2 in high-temperature electrodes, advanced nuclear fission reactors, molten metal containment, refractory crucibles, thermocouple protection tubes in steel baths and aluminum reduction cells, reinforcement fibers, solar power, aerospace, and armor applications.

  3. 3. Materials Design from First Principles : stability and magnetism of nanolaminates

    Author : Martin Dahlqvist; Johanna Rosén; Nicola Spaldin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this thesis, first-principles calculations within density functional theory are presented, with a principal goal to investigate the phase stability of so called Mn+1AXn (MAX) phases. MAX phases are a group of nanolaminated materials comprised of a transition metal (M), a group 12-16 element (A), and carbon or nitrogen (X). READ MORE

  4. 4. Cathodic Arc Synthesis of Ti-Si-C-N Thin Films : Plasma Analysis and Microstructure Formation

    Author : Anders Eriksson; Johanna Rosén; Lars Hultman; Arutiun Ehiasarian; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This Thesis explores the arc deposition process and films of Ti-Si-C-N, inspired by the two ternary systems Ti-Si-N and Ti-C-N, both successfully applied as corrosion and wear resistant films. The correlation between cathode, plasma, and film properties are studied for a comprehensive view on film formation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cathodic Arc Synthesis of Ti-Si-C-N Thin Films from Ternary Cathodes

    Author : Anders Eriksson; Johanna Rosén; Claudia Walter; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Cathodic arc deposition is a powerful technique for thin film synthesis, associated with explosive phase transformations resulting in an energetic and highly ionized plasma. This Thesis presents film growth through arc deposition from compound cathodes of Ti3SiC2, providing source material for plasma and films rich in Si and C. READ MORE
