  • Surface hardening of Zr-based metallic glass via laser surface alloying with silicon powder

    Zhang D., Qian Y., Zhang L., Huang H., Yan J.

    Scripta Materialia (Scripta Materialia)  220 2022.11

    ISSN  13596462

     View Summary

    Increasing the hardness and wear resistance of metallic glasses (MGs) is beneficial to prolong their service life in highly aggressive environments. For the purpose of achieving surface hardening, in this work, laser surface alloying technology was employed to modify Zr-based MG with silicon powder as the pre-placed powder. The experimental results showed that the laser alloyed layer with thickness of several tens of micrometers was generated on the MG substrate. The surface hardness of the laser alloyed layers ranged from 11.34 to 17.97 GPa, which was significantly higher than that of the as-cast MG surface (6.36 GPa). Furthermore, the scratch resistance of the laser alloyed layer was improved compared to the as-cast sample. The chemical composition analysis indicated that the laser alloyed layer was mainly composed of in-situ formed ZrSi2 phase and residual Si, and these hard phases were responsible for the high hardness of the laser alloyed layer.

  • Formation, evolution and characterization of nanoporous structures on the Ti6Al4V surface induced by nanosecond pulse laser irradiation

    Wang C., Huang H., Zhang Z., Zhang L., Yan J., Ren L.

    Materials and Design (Materials and Design)  223 2022.11

    ISSN  02641275

     View Summary

    Manipulating materials at nanoscale is challenging but rewarding. Nanostructures exhibit some unique properties distinguished from macroscopic bulk materials, so fabrication of nanostructures on the material surface is beneficial to broaden their functional applications. In this study, by nanosecond pulse laser irradiation in nitrogen atmosphere, it was found that unique nanoporous structures could be formed on the Ti6Al4V surface. The effects of laser parameters including the laser power, overlap rate, scanning speed, and repetition frequency on the formation and evolution of the nanoporous structures were systematically investigated. By changing the laser parameters, the nanoporous structures with various porosities could be easily achieved on the Ti6Al4V surface. According to the structural evolution and chemical composition, the formation mechanism of the nanoporous structures was discussed. Furthermore, by characterizing the micro-mechanical properties and wettability, it was found that the surface with nanoporous structures exhibited similar surface hardness but improved tribological performances compared to the original Ti6Al4V surface, and the surface wettability could be tuned. This study provides a simple method for fabricating nanoporous structures on the Ti6Al4V surface, which would broaden its functional applications.

  • Study on nano-graphitic carbon coating on Si mold insert for precision glass molding

    Zhang L., Yan J.

    Surface and Coatings Technology (Surface and Coatings Technology)  448 2022.10

    ISSN  02578972

     View Summary

    Precision glass molding is an efficient and promising technique for large-volume micro-optical manufacturing. Even though significant progress in precision glass molding has been achieved on the anti-adhesive coating, technical challenges and barriers still exist towards tailoring the coating layer to ensure durability and long-term processing consistency in numerous molding cycles. This manuscript presents a novel molding technique utilizing micro-patterned Si mold inserts coated with a newly developed nano-graphitic carbon coating as an isolation layer in high-precision glass molding. The coating is prepared by atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition (APCVD), in which the liquid benzene and silicone rubber are used as the carbon source and silicon oxycarbide (SiOC) source, respectively. The nano-morphologies of the nano-graphitic carbon coating with different conditions are characterized and analyzed, illustrating notable differences in surface features with the addition of silicone rubber and various growth durations. In the demonstration, the nano-graphitic carbon-coated Si mold inserts exhibit unique properties, including anti-adhesive and hydrophobic at elevated temperatures. Two kinds of micro-patterned Si mold inserts, a micro-pillar matrix and a micro-lens array, generated by UV lithography and diamond turning, are utilized to demonstrate the feasibility of the anti-adhesive coating in precision glass molding. The obtained results indicate that the micro-optical features on the coated Si mold inserts are successfully transferred to glass substrates with high replication fidelity without notable signs of adhesion or contamination in repetitive molding cycles. This emerging technology makes Si an alternative mold material with low surface adhesion, enhances micro-optical machining efficiency, and replicates high-precision, low-cost micro-optics on large scales that were previously unavailable.

  • On the conversion of point-to-linear hierarchical micro/nano-structures on the glassy carbon surface by nanosecond pulsed laser irradiation

    Wang C., Zhang H., Huang H., Zhang Z., Zhang L., Yan J.

    Applied Surface Science (Applied Surface Science)  599 2022.10

    ISSN  01694332

     View Summary

    Fabrication of microstructures on the glassy carbon (GC) surface is crucial for its functional applications. However, due to its intrinsic mechanical, physical, and chemical properties, it is still challenging to fabricate hierarchical micro/nano-structures on the GC surface. In this study, by tuning the interval between adjacent points as well as the irradiation time, the conversion from the point to linear hierarchical micro/nano-structures was successfully achieved on the GC surface by nanosecond pulsed laser irradiation. The detailed conversion process and mechanism were explored and discussed. On this basis, the linear hierarchical micro/nano-structures were fabricated by direct line scanning, and the internal nanostructures were always parallel to the laser scanning direction. By repeated line scanning with relatively low laser fluence, the method of direct line scanning was further improved, and well-defined and uniform hierarchical micro/nano-structures were fabricated.

  • Towards understanding the mechanism of vibration-assisted cutting of monocrystalline silicon by cyclic nanoindentation

    Huang W., Yan J.

    Journal of Materials Processing Technology (Journal of Materials Processing Technology)  311 2022.10

    ISSN  09240136

     View Summary

    Ultrasonic vibration cutting (UVC) is a promising technology that can promote the processing of hard-brittle materials in ductile mode. The feature of intermittent cutting in UVC is considered to promote the ductile responses of brittle materials. However, the effect of cyclic loading/impact on microscopic deformation behavior of the workpiece material in UVC is not clearly understood. This study used cyclic nanoindentation to reveal the UVC mechanism in monocrystalline silicon (Si). The surface morphology and subsurface microstructure of the residual indents were characterized and compared with those of the UVC-machined grooves. This work attempted to correlate the tool-workpiece contacts for cyclic nanoindentation and vibration cutting. Cyclic nanoindentation results show that cyclic loading promotes the extent of silicon amorphization and decreases the threshold for transitioning the β–Sn phase to the bc8 and r8 phases. As the number of indentation cycles increases, the subsurface microstructure changes from the amorphous phase to the bc8 and r8 phases. In UVC, both the critical cutting depth for brittle-to-ductile transition and the degree of amorphization in cutting chips increase in comparison to conventional cutting, which matches the trend of cyclic nanoindentation results. The findings inform the chip formation and subsurface deformation mechanisms of brittle materials during UVC.
