Abstract:Plasma immersion ion implantation (PIII) of nitrogen on low alloy high carbon steel was carried out at low energy negatively biased (?1 kV) pulses with 3?8 kHz repetition rate for 3, 4 and 5 h of cumulative duration at a high dose of 1023 nitrogen ions per m2. Following PIII, the plasma ion implanted samples were subjected to microhardness measurements, potentiodynamic polarisation tests in 1 wt-%NaCl solution and post-corrosion microstructural studies. PIII at 500°C for 3 h seems to yield the optimum combination of increase in both hardness and resistance to corrosion.
