Abstract:Ti(C, N) films were deposited by Plasma Enhanced Magnetron Sputtering Ion Plating (PEMSIP), and their microstructures and properties were investigated by means of XRD,AES, TEM and scratch test.The results showed that an interlayer about 80 nm thickness was formed between the high speed steel (HSS) substrate and Ti(C, N) films. In addition, crystalline orientation relationships were found among the substrate, interlayer and Ti(C, N) films. Therefore, the Ti(C, N) films combine high hardness and excellent adhesion strength.
Key words: PEMSIP interlayer adhesion strength crystalline orientation relationship
