Research on the Adhesion of Stainless Steel Film on Gd by Magnetron Sputtering
In order to research the adhesion of sputtering protective coating of Gd. Gd substrates was coated with 1Cr18Ni9Ti by means of DC magnetron sputtering technology. The characteristics of the film were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), EDS, SPM and the adhesions of film was tested by tension test. The results show that the films of 1Cr18Ni9Ti are distributed by means of islands when the sputtering was initiated and the grains are like thin fiber. After a few minutes, the films are smooth and perfect, the interferences between 1Cr18Ni9Ti and Gd join together strongly, and the largest strength of adhesion is 24.7MPa when the sputtering density is 966 w/cm2 and the sputtering time is 8 minutes.
