Titanium oxynitride coatings were deposited on various substrates by an original atmospheric pressure metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) process using titanium tetra-iso-propoxide as titanium and oxygen precursors and hydrazine as a nitrogen source. The films composition was monitored by controlling the N2H4 mole fraction in the initial reactive gas phase. The variation of the N content in the films results in significant changes in morphological, structural and mechanical properties. When a large excess of the nitrogen source is used the resulting film contains ca 17 at % of nitrogen and forms dense and amorphous TiOxNy films. Growth rates of these amorphous TiO1.5N0.5 coatings as high as 14 μm/h were obtained under atmospheric pressure. The influence of the deposition conditions on the morphology, the structure, the composition and the growth rate of the films is presented. For the particular conditions leading to the growth of amorphous TiO1.5N0.5 coatings, first studies on the mechanical properties of samples grown on stainless steel have revealed a high hardness, a low friction coefficient, and a good wear resistance in unlubricated sliding experiments against alumina which make them very attractive as protective metallurgical coatings.
