Paper Abstract

Chromium nitride (CrNx) layers have been prepared by d.c. reactive sputtering of chromium in an argon-nitrogen atmosphere. Structural, electrical and optical properties of samples, deposited at various nitrogen pressures, have been determined. Spectrally selective CrNx layers on a polished copper substrate show a moderate solar absorptance (αs≈ = 0.80) and a low thermal emittance(εn 0.04). The absorptance has been improved by depositing CrNx films on a rough copper base-layer. The thermal stability in vacuum and the corrosion resistance of CrNx, samples have been tested.
