Abstract

(Al100-xCrx)N (x ≤ 36%) protective film with high transmissivity was deposited onto organic photoconductor (OPC) surface by RF reactive magnetron sputtering. The surface hardness was increased by a factor of 1.5-3.2. The OPC surface protected by (Al100-xCrx)N (x ≤ 71%) film was harder than that by AlN film, and the maximum surface hardness was achieved using ∼47% Cr content. The electrophotographic properties of (Al100-xCrx)N (x ≤ 36%) coated OPC are better than those of either uncoated or AlN-coated OPC. These results confirm the suitability of (Al100-xCrx)N (x ≤ 36%) film to prolong the operating life of OPC. © 1998 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
