In general, neon implantation is not very effective in reducing wear rates. However, neon implantation into laser-melted steel turns out to reduce the wear rate substantially as a result of a conversion of residual tensile stresses into compressive ones. Nitrogen implantation, on the other hand, at a high dose of 3×1017 ions/cm2 at 90 °C exhibits a deleterious effect on the wear performance. A brittle layer of ε-Fe2(C,N)1-x nitrides is formed. At a lower dose of 1×1017/cm2 or implantation of nitrogen at 150 °C, the wear rate is also reduced.

    Abstract. Femtosecond laser pulses were applied to study the energy deposition depth and transfer to the lattice for Au, Ni, and Mo films of varying thickness. The onset of melting, defined here as damage threshold, was detected by measuring changes in the scattering, reflection and transmission...
