Figure 8
Depth variation of intensities along TiN (a) 200 and (b) 111 Debye-Scherrer rings in the blasted sample. In agreement with the data from Fig. 5[link], the relatively strong intensities at [psi] = 10 and 90° for TiN 200 and [\psi\cong 50]° for TiN 111 document the presence of a {100} fibre texture whose intensity changes as a function of the depth. The increase in the texture sharpness at depths of about 0-5.5 µm was caused by the temperature increase during the deposition.  [article HTML]
