We report a new method of fabricating nanoporous catalytic thin films. In the first step, metal–carbon thin films were prepared by reactive magnetron sputtering, using various metallic targets (Au, Ag, Pt, Cu, Ni, Ti) as [...]
Focused Ion Beam (FIB) micro-machining technique has been used to generate various nano-structures on NiTi shape memory alloy films. The fabrication and nano-mechanical investigations of the nano-structures have been included in this paper.
Thin films of hydrogenated diamond-like carbon (DLC) have been deposited on hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) for reduction of friction and enhancement of wear resistance of dynamic rubber seals, by sputtering graphite targets in C2H2/Ar [...]
This work describes the self-assembly of stable gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) on microcrystal faces of cyclodextrin inclusion compound (CD-IC). giving as result a supramolecular arrangement (Fig. 1). That was obtained by means of magnetron sputtering technique. [...]
