Flexural stiffness of feather shafts: geometry rules over material properties
This study shows that no significant variation in Young's modulus between the two species exists and shows that flexural stiffness is predominantly influenced by the geometry of the feathers rather than by local material properties.
Ionized sputter deposition using an extremely high plasma density pulsed magnetron discharge
Time resolved plasma probe measurements of a novel high power density pulsed plasma discharge are presented. Extreme peak power densities in the pulse (on the order of several kW cm−2) result in a
Experiment and simulation of the compositional evolution of Ti–B thin films deposited by sputtering of a compound target
The evolution of the coating stoichiometry with pressure, target-substrate distance, and angle was analyzed for dc sputtering of TixB (x=0.5, 1, 1.6) compound targets by elastic recoil detection
Thermal stability of Ti3SiC2 thin films
