Theory of a surface phase transformation induced by impurity atoms in binary alloys containing interstitial impurity atoms
Mutual influence of the surface segregation of atoms on lattice sites and in interstitials is studied in the self-consistent field approximation. The effect of occurrence of a local surface phase transformation is predicted, which is caused by a local loss of stability of the statistical distribution of atoms of components on the surface due to the presence of interstitial impurity atoms. A theory is constructed for an induced phase transformation for  plane of a single crystal of a binary alloy with an fcc lattice whose octahedral interstitials are occupied by interstitial atoms.
