      Polychronopoulou, K.; Rebholz, Claus; Demas, N. G.; Polycarpou, A. A.; Gibson, P. N. (Affiliation: Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Eng., University of Cyprus, Nicosia, CyprusAffiliation: Department of Mechanical Science and Eng., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, United StatesAffiliation: Institute for Health and Consumer Protection, Joint Res. Centre of the European Commission, Ispra (VA), ItalyCorrespondence Address: Polychronopoulou, K.Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Eng., University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 2010)
      Cr-N and Cu-Cr-N coatings with Cu content between 3-65 at.%, Cu/Cr ratios in the 0.04-4.5 range and 21-27 at.% N, synthesized by twin e-beam Physical Vapor Deposition (EBPVD) at 450°C, were investigated. Using X-ray ...

      The nanostructure, wear and corrosion performance of arc-evaporated CrBxNy nanocomposite coatings 

      Polychronopoulou, K.; Baker, M. A.; Rebholz, Claus; Neidhardt, J.; O'Sullivan, M.; Reiter, A. E.; Kanakis, K.; Leyland, A.; Matthews, A.; Mitterer, C. (2009)
      The composition, nanostructure, tribological and corrosion behaviour of reactive arc evaporated CrBxNy coatings have been studied and compared to CrN. The CrBxNy coatings were deposited on a commercial Oerlikon Balzers RCS ...

      Room temperature synthesis and high temperature frictional study of silver vanadate nanorods 

      Singh, D. P.; Polychronopoulou, K.; Rebholz, Claus; Aouadi, S. M. (2010)
      We report the room temperature (RT) synthesis of silver vanadate nanorods (consisting of mainly β-AgVO3) by a simple wet chemical route and their frictional study at high temperatures (HT). The sudden mixing of ammonium ...

      Tribological behavior of CrN and Al-Cr-N coatings 

      Demas, N. G.; Polycarpou, A. A.; Polychronopoulou, K.; Rebholz, Claus (Affiliation: Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL 61801, United StatesAffiliation: Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, 1678, Nicosia, CyprusCorrespondence Address: Demas, N. G.Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL 61801, United States, 2009)
      The tribological behavior of CrN and Al-Cr-N coatings prepared by twin electron-beam evaporation at 450°C was investigated. The composition, structure, mechanical and tribological properties of the coatings were determined ...
