Liu, Y. (author)
A better understanding of the wear mechanism of materials is essential to selecting suitable materials to prolong service time and reduce costs. Wear resistance is not an intrinsic material property but a response to a system including multiples parameters determined by the material, the counter body, the load condition, and the environment....

NiTi (Nickel Titanium) is a shape memory alloy (SMA) known for shape memory effect and superelasticity. The shape memory effect and superelasticity allows NiTi to be strained reversibly unto 6-8%. NiTi thin films are of technological interest as actuator materials in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) because they possess a large deformation...

Thin metal nitride films deposited by Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) are used amongst many other applications as wear protective coatings in tool industry or as diffusion barriers in integrated circuit technology. Typically these films exhibit a residual in-plane stress when deposited onto rigid substrates such as silicon wafers or cutting...
