Özet

Type 304 austenitic stainless steel samples were implanted with nitrogen using plasma immersion ion implantation (PIII) at different temperatures between 350 and 500 degrees C. Treated and untreated samples have been studied by wear-friction testing, microhardness measurement and scanning electron microscopy ( SEM). The experimental results indicated that the hardness and wear resistance is improved by increasing the penetration depth of nitrogen, whereas the friction coefficient is significantly increased by PIII.
