Sputtering of TiC coating by low-energy and high flux plasma bombardment in PISCES
Chemical vapour TiC coatings deposited on AISI 316 SS for plasma facing component applications were investigated in conditions simulating the edge plasma of a tokamak. Samples were exposed to continuous plasma bombardment at a range of values of n(e), T(e), flux and fluence on target. Surface modification and chemical composition change effects were diagnosed by AES and XPS analysis, whereas morphological changes were studied by SEM techniques.
