Abstract:

The possibility of nitriding titanium in a glow discharge in a purified nitrogen medium was established. Nitriding in a glow discharge occurs two to three times faster than during furnance heating. The phase composition of the nitrided layer was defined as a function of processing mode. The depth of the nitride zone during processing in a glow discharge was no more than 3-4 micrometers Changing the nitriding regime affects the phase composition of the nitrided layer.
