Magnetic Force Microscopic Description of the Structure of Glow Discharge Nitrided Layers Produced on Ni27Ti2AlMoNb Steel
The paper analyzes the magnetic properties and stability of austenite, athermal martensite, and deformation martensite that form in Ni27Ti2AlMoNb steel subjected to glow discharge assisted nitriding, and also of nitrogen austenite (S phase with various lattice constants) which occurs when the nitriding process is conducted below the temperature As. The analysis of these structural components and their morphology was performed using a magnetic force microscope (MFM), whereas the phase composition of the nitrided layers produced on this steel was determined by X-ray diffraction.
