      Electron spectroscopic studies of nanocomposite PVD TiAlBN coatings 

      Baker, M. A.; Rebholz, Claus; Leyland, A.; Matthews, A. (2002)
      A range of TiAlBN coatings have been deposited by electron beam evaporation and the optimised composition exhibits a 150% improvement over single phase TiAlN coatings in drilling tests. The coatings have been analysed by ...

      Nanostructural studies of PVD TiAlB coatings 

      Monclus, M. A.; Baker, M. A.; Rebholz, Claus; Stolojan, V.; Gibson, P. N.; Leyland, A.; Matthews, A. (2006)
      TiAlB coatings with different compositions were deposited by co-sputtering from TiAl and TiB2 targets onto AISI316 stainless steel substrates at a temperature of 170 °C. The stoichiometry and nanostructure have been studied ...

      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 ...

      Tribological properties of twin electron-beam evaporated Cr-N and Al-Cr-N coatings under laboratory sliding and drill experiments 

      Polychronopoulou, K.; Demas, N. G.; Rebholz, Claus; Polycarpou, A. A. (2008)
      The tribological behavior of substoichiometric Cr-N and Al-Cr-N coatings prepared by twin electron-beam evaporation at 450°C was studied. Al-Cr-N coatings with Al to Cr ratios in the range of 1-8 (and nitrogen concentrations ...
