Wear behaviour of 38NCD4 N-ion implanted steel

Abstract

A wear test at increasing load has been performed on 38NCD4 steel ion implanted with a dose of 2 × 1017 ions cm−2 and a beam current of 100 ΜA. A considerable reduction of the cumulative damage occurring during the test was found. This has been correlated with the surface precipitation hardening caused by the implantation.
