Enhanced corrosion resistance of austenitic stainless steel by plasma immersion ion implantation of nitrogen
Pham, M. T.; Ram Mohan Rao, K.; Manna, I.; Richter, E.;
Surface coating on austenitic stainless steel 304 (ASS) was generated by plasma immersion ionimmplantation (PIII) of nitrogen. The corrosion resistance was shown to increase by ca. four orders of magnitude. A barrier layer produced by PIII was observed to restrict the underlaying alloy surface exposed to the corrosion environment.
