High Temperature Deformation of AlN/CrN Multilayers using Nanoindentation

  • F. Giuliani (a1), A. Goruppa (a2), S. J. Lloyd (a1), D. Teer (a2) and W. J. Clegg (a1)...


The aim of this paper is to investigate the deformation behaviour of an AlN/CrN multilayer with wavelengths varying from 6–400 nm, deposited on M42 tool steel and how this varies as the temperature is increased to 500 °C. These measurements have been correlated with changes in deformation patterns using cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy, where sections have been prepared directly through the indents.
