Abstract

Various techniques have been used to coat metal substrates with noble metals in order to produce corrosion-resistant materials. This paper studies the quality of titanium films deposited on AISI 4340 steel substrates by magnetron sputtering, and their corresponding corrosion behaviour. Coated specimens were characterized using microstrutural and electrochemical techniques. SEM analysis revealed that a film of columnar structure and high density was obtained when the subs
