|Title:||Nitriding of AISI 4140 steel by a low energy broad ion source|
|Abstract:||A comprehensive study of the thermochemical nitriding process of steel AISI 4140 by low energy ion implantation (Kaufmann cell). is reported. Different times of implantation were employed and the studied samples were characterized by x-ray diffraction, in situ photoemission electron spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and hardness (nanoindentation) measurements. The linear relationship between nitrogen content and hardness was verified. The structure of the nitrided layer was characterized yielding that the compound layer is formed by coarse precipitates, around small grains, constituted principally by epsilon-Fe2-3N and gamma-Fe4N phases and the diffusion zone is formed by fine precipitates, around big grains of the original martensitic phase, constituted principally by gamma-Fe4N phase. Finally, a diffusion model for multiphase systems was applied to determine effective diffusion coefficients of nitrogen in the different phases. (c) 2006 American Vacuum Society.|
