X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of radiofrequency-sputtered refractory-compound--steel interfaces by Donald R Wheeler( Book )
5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 74 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

Adhesion of polymers to tungsten as studied by field ion microscopy by William A Brainard( )
3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 26 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
Preliminary studies by field ion microscopy of adhesion of platinum and gold to tungsten and iridium by William A Brainard( )
2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 25 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

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 19 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
Adhesion and transfer of polytetrafluoroethylene to tungsten studied by field ion microscopy by William A Brainard( Book )
4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mechanical contacts between polytetrafluoroethylene (PT FE) and tungsten field ion tips were made in situ in the field ion microscope. Both load and force of adhesion were measured for varying contact times and for clean and contaminated tungsten tips. Strong adhesion between the PTFE and clean tungsten was observed at contact times greater than 2-1/2 min (forces of adhesion were greater than three times the load). For times less than 2-1/2 min, the force of adhesion was immeasurably small. The increase in adhesion with contact time after 2-1/2 min can be attributed to the increase in true contact area by creep of PTFE. No adhesion was measurable at long contact times with contaminated tungsten tips. Neon field ion micrographs taken after the contacts show many linear and branched arrays which appear to represent PTFE that remains adhered to the surface even at the high electric fields required for imaging
