The maximum solubility of Al in the Bl-NaCl structure of Ti1-xAlxN films synthesized by the arc ion plating (AIP) method was studied by the X-ray diffraction method using nine kinds of Ti1-xAlx alloy targets with different Al content. Further, the drastic microstructural changes around critical range of Al content were observed by scanning electron microscopy. The resulting data was analyzed.
