Abstract

For pure molybdenum nitrided at 1373 K in NH3 gas, microstructural observations of a molybdenum nitride layer were conducted through a transmission electron microscope. The molybdenum nitride layer consisted of two molybdenum nitrides: an outer one of γ-Mo2N and an inner one of β-Mo2N. A great number of (011)[011] type twins were observed in the β-Mo2N phase, whereas the microstructure of the γ-Mo2N phase was almost free from lattice defects except for slightly observed {111}〈112〉 type twin.
