Abstract Ni-doped TiN coatings were deposited on 45 steel surfaces by ultrasound assisted pulse electrodeposition (UAPE) from reformative Watt nickel-based electrolytes. The effects of ultrasonic intensities on microstructure, chemical composition, nanomechanical and corrosion properties of the obtained coatings were investigated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), nanoindenter, and… CONTINUE READING
