Anotace
The main subject of the project was preparation of novel nanostructured and nanolaminate coatings using magnetron sputtering, and complex analysis of coating response to local static and dynamic indentation tests. Original data were obtained from indentation tests in a broad range of applied loads; microstructure of deformed volume was studied by advanced methods of electron microscopy (SEM including 3D mapping using FIB, TEM including high resolution), deformation mechanisms and failure onsets were assigned and various effects detected on the indentation curves (such as pop-ins and slope discontinuities) were interpreted in terms of observed microstructural changes and results of computer modelling of indentation response. A complex software for analysis of indentation results was developed taking into account not only the unloading but also the loading part of indentation curves, which is often omitted. The method was applied for optimization of deposition conditions and novel nanolaminate coatings with superior mechanical properties were obtained.
