Thin film specimens of titanium - titanium nitride multilayer erosion resistant coating were prepared using liftout technique in Focused Ion Beam - Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The fracture toughness of the thin film specimen was measured in situ using a cantilever bending experiment in SEM to be 11.33 MPa/m0.5 , twice as much as conventional TiN coatings. Ti–TiN multi-layer coatings are part of a new class of advanced erosion resistant coatings and this paper discusses an experimental technique to measure the fracture toughness of these coatings.
