X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of radiofrequency-sputtered refractory-compound--steel interfaces by Donald R Wheeler( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radiofrequency sputtering was used to deposit Mo2C, Mo2B5, and MoSi2 coatings on 440C steel substrates. Both sputter etched and preoxidized substrates were used, and the films were deposited with and without a substrate bias of -300 V. The composition of the coatings was measured as a function of depth by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy combined with argon ion etching. In the interfacial region there was evidence that bias produced a graded interface in Mo2B5 but not in Mo2C. Oxides of iron and of all film constituents except carbon were presented in all cases but the iron oxide concentration was higher and the layer thicker on the preoxidized substrates. The film and iron oxides were mixed in the MoSi2 and Mo2C films but layered in the Mo2B5 film. The presence of mixed oxides correlates with enhanced film adhesion

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of radiofrequency-sputtered titanium carbide, molybdenum carbide, and titanium boride coatings and their friction properties by William A Brainard( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radiofrequency (rf) sputtered coatings of titanium carbide (TiC), molybdenum carbide (Mo2C) and titanium boride (TiB2) were tested as wear resistant coatings on 440-C stainless steel in a pin on disk apparatus. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) was used to analyze the sputtered films with regard to both bulk and interface composition in order to obtain maximum film performance. Significant improvements in friction behavior were obtained when properly biased films were deposited on deliberately preoxidized substrates. XPS depth profile data showed thick graded interfaces (>2500 A) for bias deposited films even when adherence is poor. The addition of 10 percent hydrogen to the sputtering gas produced coatings with Thin poorly adherent interfaces. The results suggest that some of the common practices in the field of sputtering may be detrimental to achieving maximum adherence and optimum composition for these refractory compounds

Effect of crystal transformation and atomic ordering on friction and wear of two cobalt-base alloys in vacuum by William A Brainard( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effect of crystal and order-disorder transformations on friction and wear for Be-Co and FeCo alloys were studied in sliding friction experiments in vacuum at elevated temperatures. The results show that friction increases fourfold for the beryllium-cobalt alloy during transformation and that friction remains high until the reverse or cooling transformation occurs. The friction and wear of Be-Co are markedly superior to 440-C stainless steel. The order-disorder transformation in FeCo increases friction by a factor of 30 and also significantly increases wear. Increased sliding speed and loading affect the transformation. The friction behavior during heating is in good agreement with the type of order-temperature relation in FeCo
Effect of surface topography on structural growth of thick sputtered films by Talivaldis Spalvins( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Primarily thick sputtered S-Monel, silver, and 304 stainless steel coatings were deposited on mica, glass, and metal substrates with various surface finishes to investigate the structural growth of the coating by scanning electron microscopy. Compositional changes within the coating were analyzed by X-ray dispersion microscopy. Defects in the surface finish act as preferential nucleation sites and form isolated and complex nodules and various surface overgrowths in the coating. These nodules do not disappear after full annealing. Further, they have undesirable effects on mechanial properties; cracks are initiated at the nodules when the coating is stressed by mechanical forces. These effects are illustrated by micrographs. Nodular growth within a coating can be minimized or eliminated by reducing the surface roughness

Preliminary studies by field ion microscopy of adhesion of platinum and gold to tungsten and iridium by William A Brainard( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adhesion experiments with platinum and gold contacting tungsten and iridium field-ionmicroscope emitter tips were conducted in vacuum. Platinum contacting tungsten at 300 K showed an ordered surface believed to represent mechanical transfer of the platinum onto the tungsten in an ordered manner. Gold contacting tungsten at 78 K showed essentially a random transfer with some clustering of gold atoms. God transferred onto iridium by contacting at 78 K presented an ordered appearance due to decoration of ledge sites by the gold atoms. Iridium contacted by platinum showed a highly ordered surface believed to be epitaxial transfer of platinum on the surface. Contacting iridium with platinum without vibration isolation caused large globs of platinum to transfer onto iridium in an ordered manner
Adhesion of polymers to tungsten as studied by field ion microscopy by William A Brainard( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mechanical contacts with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and polyimide polymer (PI) contacting tungsten field ion microscope emitter tips were conducted in vacuum. The metal polymer interface was examined on an atomic scale by helium field ion microscopy. Mechanical transfer was observed upon simple touch contact of the polymer materials to tungsten. The transferred polymers were stable even at the high field necessary for helium ionization, thus implying a strong chemical bonding to the metal surface. The mechanical contact stresses orient the transferred material on the tungsten surface in a radial manner from the center of contact. With sufficient load the PTFE and PI cause deformation of the tungsten. On the tungsten (110) plane, individual molecular clusters can be resolved
