Anti-abrasive nanocoatings : current and future applications by M Aliofkhazraei

By M Aliofkhazraei

This booklet offers an summary of the fabrication equipment for anti-abrasive nanocoatings. The connections between fabrication parameters, the features of nanocoatings and the ensuing homes (i.e. nanohardness, durability, put on cost, load-bearing skill, friction coefficient, and scratch resistance) are mentioned. Size-affected mechanical homes of nanocoatings are tested, together with their makes use of. Anti-abrasive nanocoatings, together with metallic-, ceramic-, and polymeric-based layers, in addition to other forms of nanostructures, similar to multi-layered nanocomposites and skinny motion pictures, are reviewed.

  • Provides a accomplished assessment of the fabrication tools for anti-abrasive nanocoatings
  • Discusses the connections between fabrication parameters, the features of nanocoatings and the ensuing properties
  • Reviews merits and disadvantages of fabrication equipment for anti-abrasive nanocoatings and clarifies where of those nanocoatings on this planet of nanotechnology

Phoenix, Institute of Nanotechnology and Bioengineering, School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Central Lancashire, Preston PR1 2HE, UK. Waqar Ahmed is Head of the Institute of Nanotechnology and Bioengineering, School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK and Chair: Nanotechnology & Advanced Manufacturing at the University of Central Lancashire (UK). Previously, Prof. Ahmed was Chair, Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials in the Northern Ireland Bioengineering Centre Research (NIBEC), University of Ulster (UK), and he has contributed to the wider industrial adoption of surface coating solutions through fundamental research and modelling of gas phase processes in CVD and studies of tribological behaviour.

The 10% addition of chromium in cobalt improves its oxidation and corrosion resistance, whereas the addition of tungsten and molybdenum improve the strength, friction Wear, friction and prevention of tribo-surfaces by coatings/nanocoatings 9 and wear properties. The addition of silicon, iron, zinc, lead, tin indium and so on, improves the friction of aluminium alloys, which may be due either to the formation of hard phases increasing the overall hardness of the alloy or the presence of soft metal forming a layer at the contacting surface restricting direct contact and increasing shearing strength.

He has made major strides in development of CZTS solar cells, an alternative technology for solar cell production that is not only more economical but also uses earth abundant materials rather than the ordinarily used rare materials in short supply. About the contributors xxxv Currently, he holds Research Assistant Professor Position in the Department of Metallurgical Engineering, University of Utah. His primary research is in the area of cost effective synthesis of chalcogenide solar cell materials, sensors and optical materials.
