Synthesis of super-hard Mo–Al–Cr–N coatings: ab initio guided empirical approach


The continuously growing demands for materials in machining industry are in need for further developments of multifunctional, high-performance coatings. Whereas TiN-, CrN-, and ZrN-based coatings are widely investigated, there is only limited information available about the MoN-based coatings. Although the high-temperature cubic phase γ-Mo2N possesses… (More)
