Special Issue Information
Wear and corrosion resistance technology is crucial for industrial applications including scientific issues for surface protection, improvement of lubricity even chemical resistance. Among them, wear and corrosion resistance technology dealing with thin film materials allows significant and effective way for their main purpose showing strengthening effect of wear and corrosion by using coating or deposition with various materials (composite films, physical vapor deposition, plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition coating, plasma-assisted chemical vapour deposition coating, etc).
The aim of this Special Issue “Wear and Corrosion Resistance Technology of Thin Film Materials” is to bring together and specifies the various wear and corrosion resistance technologies (development and applications) as a viewpoint of lubricant or friction with following themes.
- Wear and corrosion resistance technologies of thin film;
- Various materials for film coating technologies;
- Metal alloy or carbon-based investigation of film;
- Macroscopic or microscopic (micro/nano) composite films for wear and corrosion;
- Development and applications of resistance technologies of thin film materials in various environments, such as semiconductor applications (LED/OLED), aerospace/automobile engineering, energy and environmental technology, medical/pharmaceutical industry, paper/cellulose industry.
