The effect of nitrogen on the passivation mechanisms and electronic properties of chromium oxide layers

Abstract : In this work, several Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) films of chromium and chromium nitride were grown by adjusting the nitrogen flow rate. It was found that films containing lower nitrogen content exhibited better corrosion behaviour in relation to their microstructure. Moreover, the resistivities of the samples were found to increase with N content due to a decrease in the number of metallic bonds in the coatings and a loss of oxide layer conductivity. The latter is linked to a decrease of charge carrier density by the incorporation of View the MathML source species into the passive layers, which decreases cation vacancy density.
