  • Investigation of failure modes and material structural responses of nanographite coatings on single-crystal silicon by nanoscratching

    Brüssel F., Huang W., Yan J.

    Tribology International (Tribology International)  193 2024.05

    ISSN  0301679X

     View Summary

    The failure modes of a nanographite-on-silicon system and the effects of the coating on the load-induced phase transformation of the silicon substrate were investigated using a series of nanoscratching tests with a spherical diamond indenter. The critical normal load for the failure of the nanographite coating was determined based on the thickness of the coating. When the load increased beyond the critical point, cracks, press spallation, and lift spallation were observed, and the silicon substrate underwent a phase transformation from the original crystalline phase to a mixture of amorphous, Si-III and Si-XII phases. For a thin coating, the silicon substrate was free of phase transformation owing to the coating protection. These findings provide guidance for glass molding and other applications.

  • Simultaneous flattening and hardening of laser shock peened Zr-based metallic glass surface by nanosecond laser irradiation in a flowing nitrogen atmosphere

    Qian Y., Liu B., Hong J., Jiang M., Zhang Z., Zhang L., Huang H., Yan J.

    Journal of Materials Processing Technology (Journal of Materials Processing Technology)  326 2024.05

    ISSN  09240136

     View Summary

    Laser shock peening (LSP) is an ideal surface modification technique which has been extensively applied to improve the room-temperature plasticity of metallic glasses (MGs) by generating extra-deep compressive residual stress region and increasing the free volume content. Nevertheless, after LSP treatment, the surface quality and hardness of MGs are usually impaired simultaneously, which hinders their applications as structural and functional materials. In the current study, an attempt was made to achieve simultaneous flattening and hardening of LSP treated (LSPed) Zr-based MG by nanosecond laser irradiation in a flowing nitrogen atmosphere. The effects of laser power level on the macro- and micro-morphology, chemical composition, surface hardness, and surface roughness (Sa) of the laser-irradiated LSPed MG were comprehensively investigated. It was found that the minor surface defects of the LSPed MGs could be effectively reduced by nanosecond laser irradiation under appropriate laser irradiation parameters, and accordingly, the surface quality was improved (with a maximum reduction in surface roughness (Sa) by 86.3%). Furthermore, the nanoindentation test results indicated that nanosecond laser irradiation at a relatively high laser power of 15.6 W resulted in an impressive improvement (173.9%) in surface hardness of the LSPed MG, which could be attributed to the introduction of hard nitrided phases mainly consisting of Zr3N4. This study provides an insightful understanding of the microstructure changes and surface characteristics of the LSPed MGs after nanosecond laser irradiation in a flowing nitrogen atmosphere, which paves the way for improving the applicability of MGs as structural and functional materials.

  • Effect of dopant concentration on femtosecond pulsed laser irradiation of yttria-stabilized zirconia for generating nanopores

    Yamamuro Y., Shimoyama T., Nagata H., Yan J.

    Journal of Alloys and Compounds (Journal of Alloys and Compounds)  980 2024.04

    ISSN  09258388

     View Summary

    Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is a fine ceramics material that has been applied to dental implants and mechanical components. As YSZ is a hard, brittle, and chemically stable material, that undergoes phase transformation during mechanical loading, it is difficult to fabricate nanostructures using mechanical processing methods. In this study, a surface structuring method using a femtosecond pulsed laser was proposed, which is effective in suppressing the mechanical loading-induced phase transformation. As the material properties of YSZ vary with the concentration of yttria dopant, polycrystalline zirconia samples with different yttria concentrations (2, 3, 5, and 8 mol%) were used to investigate the effect of yttria concentrations on laser processing characteristics for nanostructuring. At all concentrations, nanopore generation in the surface grain was achieved by laser irradiation near the ablation threshold. In addition, there was no significant change in the crystal structure before and after laser irradiation, and no damage to the bulk occurred. At 2 mol%, intergranular cracks were generated around the pores. By increasing the dopant level to 5 mol%, the lens effect of the crystal grains became stronger due to enhanced grain growth, and the diameter and number of pores increased. In addition, pores formed preferentially on smaller grains at 5 mol%. However, for YSZ with 8 mol%, the pore formation phenomenon was different from that in the lower dopant level, as the area near the grain boundary was preferentially ablated, and microcracks formation and exfoliation of the surface also occurred. These results contribute to a deeper understanding of the laser ablation characteristics of zirconia with different dopant levels and to the development of surface structuring methods for fine ceramics materials.

  • On the surface characteristics and removability of RB-SiC composite processed by nanosecond pulsed laser

    An H., Qian Y., Zhang L., Zhang Z., Huang H., Yan J.

    Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing (Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing)  180 2024.02

    ISSN  1359835X

     View Summary

    The inherent hard-brittle nature of RB-SiC composite poses significant challenges for efficient machining, hindering its application and promotion. Laser processing is a non-contact treatment technique that can effectively modify the mechanical properties of the material surface, thereby altering its removability. Accordingly, the change in surface characteristics of RB-SiC composite induced by nanosecond laser irradiation was investigated. It was found that laser irradiation could effectively soften the RB-SiC composite (with a maximum reduction in hardness by 40.7%), and the softening degree was strongly dependent on the laser parameters. The chemical composition analysis showed that the SiC content was decreased while the Si content was increased after laser irradiation, which was mainly responsible for the hardness reduction of RB-SiC composite. In addition, compared to the original RB-SiC composite, the laser-irradiated samples exhibited enhanced weight loss during the polishing process. This work gives a feasible route to improve the removability of RB-SiC composite.
