Residual stresses in titanium nitride thin films deposited by direct current and pulsed direct current unbalanced magnetron sputtering
Abstract This work presents a study on the effect of deposition parameters on the residual stresses developed in titanium nitride (TiN) thin films deposited onto cemented carbide (WC-Co) substrates.Expand
Combustion synthesis of TiC–Cr3C2 composites
Abstract Combustion synthesis (CS) reactions for the formation of TiC and Cr 3 C 2 have been the object of previous studies; however, the simultaneous production of these two materials had not yetExpand
Design methodology for optimized die coatings : The case for aluminum pressure die-casting * Invited paper B7-1-1, ICMCTF, presented Monday May 2nd, 2005, San Diego
Abstract The overriding philosophy proposed in this paper is that of specifically designing an optimized die coating system, or range of systems, to meet each material forming application, ratherExpand
Soldering mechanisms in materials and coatings for aluminum die casting
Abstract The stability against reaction with aluminum of materials and coatings commonly used in aluminum die casting was investigated. The materials considered here were H13 tool steel and Anviloy®Expand
Experimental determination of the ternary diagram of the TiCrC system
Abstract The phase relationships in the TiCrC ternary system above 1300°C were investigated by means of X-ray diffraction, D.T.A., metallographic and melting point techniques. The results of thisExpand
Microstructural Evolution of Titanium Carbide–Chromium Carbide (TiC–Cr3C2) Composites Produced via Combustion Synthesis
A microstructural analysis of compounds produced by combustion synthesis coupled with hot pressing, for reactions between titanium, chromium, and carbon, was conducted. The reactions were aimed toExpand
Amorphous silicon carbide photoelectrode for hydrogen production directly from water using sunlight
Results on the use of amorphous silicon carbide (a-SiC:H) as a photoelectrode in an integrated ‘hybrid’ photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell to produce hydrogen directly from water using sunlight areExpand
Numerical and experimental analyses on the indentation of coated systems with substrates with different mechanical properties
In this work, the indentation of coated systems was studied in terms of the effect of the mechanical properties of the substrate on the film fracture behavior. Both experimental and finite elementExpand
Use of amorphous silicon tandem junction solar cells for hydrogen production in a photoelectrochemical cell
We report the use of amorphous silicon (a-Si) tandem junctions as part of an integral "hybrid" photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell to produce hydrogen directly from water using sunlight. The deviceExpand
