Abstract
Solid state nitriding of titanium under cw CO2 laser was investigated. The nitriding kinetics were studied in the case of CO2 laser treatment in isothermal conditions, and were compared to those obtained by using a conventional heating system. Identical kinetics rate constants and activation energy were obtained; therefore CO2 irradiation of the titanium surface did not influence nitride growth. Studying nitriding treatment in non isothermal conditions showed that high heating rates induced modifications of the nitride morphology. At last, we investigated the evolution of the CO2-surface coupling during the nitriding treatment. It was found that it depended only on the surface temperature and the substrate surface roughness since the growth of a few micrometers which nitride layer did not modify the coupling.
