Study on the Adhesion Properties of Protective Films to the Magnetic Refrigerant Material
Gd substrates were differently coated with Ti and 1Cr18Ni9Ti by means of DC magnetron sputtering technology. The characteristics of the films have been investigated by scanning electron microscopy(SEM), EDS,X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy(XPS),and the adhesion of films were tested by tension test. The results show that the surfaces of films are smooth and perfect, the interferences between Gd and films join together strongly, and the adhesion strengths are larger than 15MPa in these tests.
