Abstract
Light metals such as aluminium or magnesium alloys play an important role in many different industrial applications. They combine low densities, compared to iron, with high specific strength and are finding an ever increasing importance in aerospace and automobile products. However, aluminium and especially magnesium alloys show relatively poor resistance to sliding wear, low hardness and load bearing capacity, so that surface performance improvement is often recommended. Thin hard coatings ca...
