In the present study, Mo2N/Ag (MeN-X type) nanocomposite coatings were produced on HSS substrates by magnetron sputtering. The silver content of the films were adjusted by changing the inserted area of silver on Mo target. The silver content of the Films were between 0 and 10 at%. The effect of Ag content on the hardness and structural properties of Mo2N/Ag nanocomposite thin films were investigated.
