Graphene oxide thin layers, graphene oxide:silver nano-composite, graphene oxide:zinc oxide nano-composite and graphene oxide:zinc oxide/graphene oxide:silver bilayer were deposited by spray pyrolysis method. The synthesized thin layers were characterized using X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscope, energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy. The optical properties and the band gap of the thin layers were also studied and calculated using the Tauc equation. Gram-negative bacterium of Escherichia coli was used to study the antibacterial properties of thin layers. The results showed that among the thin layers investigated, GO:ZnO/GO:Ag bilayer had the greatest effect on the inhibition of E. coli growth and was able to control the growth of bacterium after 2 hours.

In this study, CrN/ZrN multilayer nanostructured coatings with different bilayers (10, 20, and 30) were created by the cathodic arc evaporation. The electrochemical behavior of samples was evaluated by polarization and impedance spectroscopy tests in the Ringer medium and the pin on disk test was used to investigate the tribological behavior of the samples. The results of measurements showed that the electrochemical and tribological behavior of the coatings depends on the number of bilayers and by rising the number of bilayers, the coating shows higher corrosion resistance and better tribological performance. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) images of the specimens after exposure to the corrosion medium showed that the number of surface cavities were formed by the coating that had the highest number of bilayers comparing with other coatings were quite fewer in number and smaller in diameter. The results of the pin on disk test showed that by increasing the number of bilayers from 10 to 30, the coefficient of friction and wear rate decreased and the 30L coating ‌showed better wear resistance.
