Nanoscale Behaviour of Certain Materials/Surfaces


Article Preview

Nanoscale studies of four important phenomena – in-situ development of high temperature (HT) wear resistant nanostructured surface glaze, the initial stages of oxidation of TiAl intermetallics, the high temperature degradation of DLC coatings and the property change promoted by nano-patterning of a TiO2 surface are described.
