Paper Title:
Effect of Low-Energy Ion Irradiation on Synthesis of Hard and Superhard Films
  Abstract

This article summarizes briefly our recent research on low-temperature synthesis of TiN, TiN/Cu and TiN/Si films by using inductively coupled plasma assisted magnetron sputtering method. It is shown that the incorporation of high-flux low-energy ion irradiation during deposition strongly affects film growth, structure evolution, morphology and mechanical properties. A main attention is devoted to the synthesis of superhard nanocomposite films at a low deposition temperature. In both TiN/Cu and TiN/Si films the maximum hardness reaches a value higher than 40 GPa.
