Abstract(s)To evaluate the effects of different concentrations of noble metal in a TiO2 matrix, different films of both Ag:TiO2 and Au:TiO2 systems were prepared. Mechanical and tribological characterization was carried out to evaluate the coatings response as a function of the noble metals composition and (micro)structure of the films. The overall set of results indicates that the amorphous films reveal better results than the crystalline ones. For the amorphous samples, the reduced Young’s modulus and the adhesion critical loads followed similar tendencies in both sets of films. Wear rates were similar for all samples except for the one with the highest silver content. To improve brittleness of TiO2 films, the results seem to indicate that a slight metal doping is preferred, and Au showed to be a better choice than Ag. In fact, the sample with the lowest Au content revealed a better mechanical behaviour than the pure TiO2 film.
