Research Institution
Not Available A number of thin film deposition techniques such as rf magnetron sputtering, dual ion beam assisted deposition (DIBAD), ion assisted dynamic mixing, high pressure synthesis of sp2 bonded carbon nitrides, thermal decomposition of molecular precursors, an even high pressureshock wave synthesis have resulted in amorphous forms of carbon nitride. It has also been concluded that in-situ deposition of carbon nitrides is also dependent on the substrate, which has prompted researchers to investigate structural templates such as ZrN, and TiN to force the growth of crystalline b-C3N4 films. However, the stability of this phase, interactions between carbon and nitrogen and newer applications for this material can be better understood with availability of pure crystalline B-C3N4 powders. In this Phase I project MMI proposes to synthesize these powders and further deposit these powders onto steel and OFHC copper substrates for preliminary evaluation of tribilogical properties. The synthesis process will be optimized through extensive characterization of the powders
