FIG. 2.

(Color online) High resolution SEM images of surfaces demonstrating surface features of nanocomposite coatings with different silver compositions: (a) 0 at. %, (b) 4.6 at. %, (c) 10.8 at. %, and (d) 16.7 at. % silver content.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(Color online) White light profilometry measurements of surfaces at low magnification demonstrating that little difference is observed between the surface topographies with different silver compositions at this magnification: (a) 0 at. %, (b) 4.6 at. %, (c) 10.8 at. %, and (d) 16.7 at. % silver content.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

(Color online) scans taken using AFM to demonstrate surface topographies using images and linear profiles: (a) 0 at. %, (b) 4.6 at. %, (c) 10.8 at. %, and (d) 16.7 at. % silver content.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

(Color online) Three dimensional scans of surfaces demonstrating shape of surface features in relation to height where : (a) 0 at. %, (b) 4.6 at. %, (c) 10.8 at. %, and (d) 16.7 at. % silver content.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Range of grain sizes of surfaces with increasing silver content demonstrating at higher silver concentrations, surfaces have a larger of size distribution, and larger grain sizes.

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

(Color online) (a) Surface topography and (b) force modulation (stiffness) images using AFM of 16.7 at. % silver surface demonstrating the heterogeneous distribution of silver grains within the TiN matrix.
