This Masters thesis project has for its main goal the study of the adhesion properties of thin oxide functional layers on the TiAlN foundation layer deposited on cemented carbides by cathodic arc evaporation-PVD technology. The mechanical and performances properties of manufactured cutting inserts were also evaluated. Different PVD parameters were used to manufacture different oxide coatings. For all coating types, the effect of binding, functional layers, layer thickness and bias ramp on both mechanical, adhesion and performance properties were studied. From the results of nano scratch testing, it was concluded that the nano scratch tester tool is not appropriate for evaluation of adhesion properties of this type of coating.

A case presentation on Peripheral Arterial Occlusive disease
Creating echoes of quality and craftsmanship from the Art Deco era using intricately designed metalwork for the stairway, elevator and core rising through this landmark Edwardian building. How a dated, nineties building was brought into the 21st Century with the addition of a thoughtfully designed and fabricated canopy with integrated lighting and no visible support. An inside perspective on the creation of moody, contemporary elevators and lobby and how the luxurious bronze finish was created using stainless steel. The story of how a tired office building became desirable again and gravitated away from its position of being a poor relation to the neighbouring grand buildings in Fetter Lane. A look behind the scenes and the design story of this private members club that had a jet-setting businesswoman as its design Muse.
Peripheral Vascular Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment
This week I saw a patient with terminal peripheral vascular disease PVD. Seeing him reminded me of how often the severity of this disease is misunderstood. He had had amputation of the toes on his right foot due to gangrene.
In the most expensive casino, in the richest region in the world the architects specified Gold PVD to complement the real gold-leaf they also specified. Here we look at the broader background of the Grand Lisboa Casino hotel and Macau, the most densely populated region on the earth. Black is Black PVD was specified for interior fixtures to blend with the signature style of this iconic fashion house.
