E and H regimes of plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition of diamond-like carbon film in low frequency inductively coupled plasma reactor

Relevancy:  

DIAM Reports the efficient deposition of hydrogenated diamond-like carbon (DLC) film in a plasma reactor that features both the capacitively and inductively coupled operation regimes. The hydrogenated DLC films have been prepared on silicon wafers using a low-frequency (500 kHz) inductively coupled plasma (ICP) chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system. At low RF powers, the system operates as an asymmetric capacitively coupled plasma source, and the film deposition process is undertaken in the electrostatic (E) discharge regime. Above the mode transition threshold, the high-density inductively coupled plasma is produced in the electromagnetic (H) discharge regime. It has been shown that the deposition rate and hardness of the DLC film are much higher in the H-mode deposition regime. For a 2.66-Pa H-mode CH4 + Ar gas mixture discharge, the deposited DLC film exhibits a mechanical hardness of 18 GPa, Young's modulus of 170 GPa, and compressive stress of 1.3 GPa.

E-coat: quantity or quality ?

Relevancy:  

Visit to Messrs Quaker Mfg Inc where their choice of electrocoat paint system is explained & justified. Cites www.pfonline.com/articles/100203.html for process control.

E-commerce in the paint sector

Relevancy:  

To what extent has the surface coating sector adopted E-commerce ? A sample questionnaire was circulated and the conclusions are presented. Some confusion as to terminology - an order sent by email is not defined as e-commerce by some. The 9 participants are listed with web addresses, some limitations are noted, for example in orders relating to one-off large plant. and statistic show penetration of Internet and for what purposes it is used now or planned.

E-nose visualises toxic chemicals.

Relevancy:  

An electronic nose able to sniff out toxic industrial chemicals using simple colour-changing cartridges could soon be on the market. The sensor works by visualising chemicals and then interpreting the result. It could have widespread uses in the chemical industry, manufacturing, safety, civilian and military security and biomedicine. The opto-electronic nose was developed at a US university. Rather than just detecting a single property of one chemical, it detects a range of properties of the chemical and visualises them. Visualisation of a chemicals properties is provided by a six by six array of metalloporphyrins, acid and base indicators, vapochromic dyes and metal nanoparticles. This array produces a colourful 'fingerprint' for each chemical, which may be scanned and analysed to confirm which chemical is present.

Early detection of aluminium corrosion via 'turn-on' fluorescence.

Relevancy:  

A spirolactam, was successfully used as a 'turn-on' fluorescent sensor to detect early corrosion of aluminium alloys. The fluorescence mechanism of the spirolactam at low pH is due to its acid-catalysed hydrolysis to Rhodamine B hydrazide that subsequently becomes protonated to its fluorescent ring-opened form. The onset of pitting corrosion of aluminium, coated with clear or filled epoxy coatings containing the spirolactam, was easily and non-destructively detected with a UV lamp. It is noted that the turn-on fluorescence strategy may easily be extended to other metal/coating combinations.

Early electroplating. Pt 3

Relevancy:  

Part 3 of a 4-part history series. Pt 3 takes up with the development of the dynamo or magneto-electric machine. It describes Elkington's purchase of the Woolrich patent covering that machine (and shows an illustration). At Elkingtons, silver deposited from cyanide had a frosty appearance. Millward discovered by chance during electroforming work, that presence of carbon disulphide acted as a brightener, and a patent was filed. The article notes the extension of the range of metals which could be electroplated. This included platinium ( Rosseleur, 1847), cadmium (1840 though not industrially until 1920), tin (Rosseleur in 1850), lead (1840 but only much later on an industrial scale) and palladium (Smee around 1851). 11 refs (Pt 1 in Feb issue, Pt 2 in March)
