Duplex treatment of AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel using rf nitriding and dc reactive magnetron sputtering of titanium
In this work, duplex treatment has been carried out using radio frequency (rf) plasma nitriding process and direct current (dc) magnetron sputtering of titanium. Nitriding of AISI 304 stainless steel, using rf plasma technique, created a thick modified layer of approximately 20 μm for short plasma processing time of 10 min. After nitriding process, a thin titanium nitride film has ... Read more
