  • Publication number: 20200030887
    Abstract: A hard coating includes two first crystalline phases, and a second crystalline phase disposed between the two first crystalline phases. The two first crystalline phases each include, independently, a laminate structure having a Ti1-x1Alx1N phase having a sodium chloride-type crystal structure, and an Alx2Ti1-x2N phase having a sodium chloride-type crystal structure that are alternately stacked. An Al composition ratio x1 of the Ti1-x1Alx1N phase satisfies a relationship 0.5?x1?0.75, and an Al composition ratio x2 of the Alx2Ti1-x2N phase satisfies a relationship 0.75<x2?0.95. The laminate structure includes a region in which an Al concentration periodically changes along a stacking direction of the Ti1-x1Alx1N phase and the Alx2Ti1-x2N phase. In this region, a difference between a maximum value of the Al composition ratio x2 and a minimum value of the Al composition ratio x1 is greater than 0.25. The second crystalline phase contains AlN having a wurtzite-type crystal structure.
