Low-temperature active-screen plasma nitriding is an effective surface engineering technology to improve the wear and corrosion resistance of austenitic stainless steel through the formation of expanded austenite. The material sputtered from the active screen and redeposited on the specimens has been suggested to play an important role in the nitriding mechanism involved. This paper reports a patterned deposition layer, which is in correlation with the grain orientation of polycrystalline specimens. This has provided new insights into the nitriding mechanism. © 2012 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
