Abstract

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) was used to investigate the chemical state of ZrC coatings deposited by cathodic arc method. A chemistry model of the ZrC films has been proposed. It was pointed out that on the films surface a highly oxidized passive layer, containing also carbon and oxygen as contaminants, was formed. The film bulk was composed by a mixture of ZrC (the dominant phase), ZrO2 and free carbon.
