Abstract

Plasma immersion ion implantation (Pill) was used to implant nitrogen into Al at a temperature in the range of 320-520 degrees C. AIN phase was observed for temperatures above 450 degrees C, whereas no AIN detected by XRD diagnosis at temperatures below 380 degrees C. It was also observed that there was no effective increase in hardness of the material, but some wear resistance due to formation of AIN. (c) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
