  • Publication number: 20220251699
    Abstract: A corrosion-resistant member including: a metal base material (10); a corrosion-resistant coating (30) formed on the surface of the base material (10); and a buffer layer (20) formed between the base material (10) and the corrosion-resistant coating (30). The base material (10) contains a main element having the highest mass content ratio among elements contained in the base material (10) and a trace element having a mass content ratio of 1% by mass or less. The corrosion-resistant coating (30) contains at least one kind selected from magnesium fluoride, aluminum fluoride, and aluminum oxide. The buffer layer (20) contains an element of the same kind as the trace element, and the content ratio obtained by energy dispersive X-ray analysis of the element of the same kind as the trace element contained in the buffer layer (20) is 2% by mass or more and 99% by mass or less.

  • Publication number: 20220243072
    Abstract: A corrosion-resistant member including: a metal base material (10); and a corrosion-resistant coating (30) formed on the surface of the base material (10). The corrosion-resistant coating (30) is a stack of a magnesium fluoride layer (31) and an aluminum fluoride layer (32) in order from the base material (10) side. The aluminum fluoride layer (32) has a first crystalline region (32A) and a second crystalline region (32B) containing crystalline aluminum fluoride. The first crystalline region (32A) is a region in which diffraction spot arrays having regularity are observed in an electron beam diffraction image obtained by irradiation with electron beams having a beam diameter of 10 nm to 20 nm. The second crystalline region (32B) is a region in which a plurality of diffraction spots is observed but diffraction spot arrays having regularity are not observed in an electron beam diffraction image obtained by irradiation with the above-described electron beams.

    Abstract: A corrosion-resistant member including: a metal base material (10); and a corrosion-resistant coating (30) formed on the surface of the base material (10). The corrosion-resistant coating (30) is a stack of a magnesium fluoride layer (31) and an aluminum fluoride layer (32) in order from the base material (10) side. The aluminum fluoride layer (32) is a stack of a first crystalline layer (32A) containing crystalline aluminum fluoride, an amorphous layer (32B) containing amorphous aluminum fluoride, and a second crystalline layer (32C) containing crystalline aluminum fluoride in order from the magnesium fluoride layer (31) side. The first crystalline layer (32A) and the second crystalline layer (32C) are layers in which diffraction spots are observed in electron beam diffraction images obtained by electron beam irradiation and the amorphous layer (32B) is a layer in which a halo pattern is observed in an electron beam diffraction image obtained by electron beam irradiation.
