Abstract: Interface reactions between liquid aluminium and ZnO single crystal substrates of <1-100> orientation (at 1273 K under vacuum) were examined using scanning and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The substrates were subjected to the “pushing drop” tests when liquid is deposited from the capillary on the substrate surface and then, after appropriate contact time, it is pushed away. After short time of interaction with <1-100>ZnO substrate, three phases were detected: α-Al2O3, the alumina of unknown type and ZnAl2O4 spinel formed due to the solid state reaction between Al2O3 and ZnO.

Abstract: Our interests are focused on the Ni/Al2O3 nanocomposite coatings electrochemically deposited in modified Watt’s-type baths into which α-Al2O3 nanopowder is added on steel substrates. The effect of different amounts of α-Al2O3 phase in the electrolyte baths on microstructure of electrodeposited Ni/Al2O3 coatings is investigated. In order to study the coatings the non-destructive X-ray diffraction techniques are applied. As indirect techniques, they are supported by imaging methods, especially scanning electron microscopy.
