PVD techniques such as magnetron and ion beam sputtering as well as vacuum arc deposition are able to produce supersaturated precipitation free and microcrystalline magnesium layers due to the high cooling rates of the film forming particles upon arrival at the substrate surface. These layers are highly textured and have corrosion properties that make them possible candidates for cathodic corrosion protection of conventional magnesium alloy components. Possible design of new magnesium based alloys and for tailoring corrosion properties will be discussed.
