The solubility of aluminum nitride in liquid iron decreases with decreasing temperature.
The amount of nitrogen that precipitates as aluminum nitride can be determined from the thermodynamically derived data in Fig.
Hui Huang from A*STAR's Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology and his colleagues from Nanyang Technological University and Jinan University, China, have fabricated asymmetric supercapacitors which incorporate metal nitride electrodes with stacked sheets of graphene.
In a current study, the effects of aluminum and silicon on the kinetics of aluminum nitride coating formation in a Fe-30Mn steel was determined.
After two hours at 1,652F (900C), Steel C is shown to develop twice the depth of aluminum nitride of Steel B.
Uranium nitride rips the hydrogen atoms off a carbon atom-no easy task.
For uranium nitride to become commercially viable, it would have to knock one hydrogen atom after another and not destroy itself in the process.
A three-year old PVD process delivers a chromium nitride coating that is less brittle than conventional hard coats and provides high adhesion, hardness, toughness, and a relatively low COF.
The coating reportedly also provides corrosion resistance similar to that of stainless steel, while its micro-hardness exceeds that of conventional PVD chromium nitride (CRN) coatings, according to Bell.
