  1. 1. Microstructural, Mechanical and Tribological Characterisation of CVD and PVD Coatings for Metal Cutting Applications

    Author : Mikael Fallqvist; Staffan Jacobsson; Mikael Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Tribology; Friction; Wear; Coatings; CVD; PVD; Alumina; Metal cutting; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot tribomaterial; Engineering Science with specialization in Tribo Materials; Steel Forming and Surface Engineering; Stålformning och ytteknik;

    Abstract : The present thesis focuses on characterisation of microstructure and the resulting mechanical and tribological properties of CVD and PVD coatings used in metal cutting applications. These thin and hard coatings are designed to improve the tribological performance of cutting tools which in metal cutting operations may result in improved cutting performance, lower energy consumption, lower production costs and lower impact on the environment.

  2. 2. Hollow Cathode Deposition of Thin Films

    Author : Lars-Erik Gustavsson; Ladislav Bárdoš; Hana Baránková; Claes Nender; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Electronics; Hollow cathode; Hybrid plasma; PVD; TiN films; Ferromagnetic substrates; Magnetized plasma; CrN films; Elektronik;

    Abstract : Thin films of metals and compounds have a very wide range of applications today. Many of the deposition methods used for the production of such films utilize plasma to support the growth the film, e.g. by the supply of energy and the enhancement of reactivity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Synthesis and Characterization of Amorphous Carbide-based Thin Films

    Author : Matilda Folkenant; Ulf Jansson; Erik Lewin; Paul Mayrhofer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Amorphous; coating; thin film; nanocomposite; sputter deposition; PVD; XPS; SEM; TEM; electrical properties; mechanical properties;

    Abstract : In this thesis, research on synthesis, structure and characterization of amorphous carbide-based thin films is presented. Crystalline and nanocomposite carbide films can exhibit properties such as high electrical conductivity, high hardness and low friction and wear. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of Ti2AlC coatings deposited with High Velocity Oxy-Fuel and Magnetron Sputtering Techniques

    Author : Jenny Frodelius; Lars Hultman; Jens Emmerlich; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MAX phase; Thermal Spray; PVD; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : This Thesis presents two different deposition techniques for the synthesis of Ti2AlC coatings. First, I have fabricated Ti2AlC coatings by high velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) spraying. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design of carbide-based nanocomposite coatings

    Author : Erik Lewin; Ulf Jansson; Jörg Patscheider; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; chemistry; thin film; dc magnetron sputtering; carbide; nanocomposite; PVD; solid solution; Chemistry; Kemi; Inorganic chemistry; Oorganisk kemi; Inorganic Chemistry; Oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis research on synthesis, microstructure and properties of carbide-based coatings is reported. These coatings are electrically conducting, and can be tailored for high hardness, low friction and wear, along with load-adaptive behaviour. Tailoring these properties is achieved by controlling the relative phase content of the material. READ MORE
