Structure and Property of CrAlN Coatings Prepared by Bipolar Pulsed Dual Magnetron Sputtering (BPDMS) under Different Pulse Bias Voltage
Recently, Cr-Al-N coatings have received more and more attention of researchers owing to its standing-out mechanical performances and superior chemical stability. In this present work, CrAlN ternary coatings were deposited by a bipolar pulsed dual magnetron sputtering (BPDMS) method and the effects of substrate negative bias on deposition rate, structure, hardness and adhesion of the coatings were investigated. The application of appropriate negative substrate bias voltage leads to dense structure, high hardness and excellent adhesion for CrAlN coatings.
