Morphology of Amerphous Alloy Formed by Ion Beam Bombardment


A study was performed to investigate the morphology of amorphous alloys vhich were formed on the surface of the samotes by means of ion beam bcmbardment. The specimens of Fe deposited with Cr, Ti, Cr-Ni or Cr-Ni-Cr multilayers were bombarded by high doses of Ar+, N+ or Ti+ ion beams respeotively. TEM and electron diffraction analysis were then used to study the kinetic transformation of amorphous to crystal during heating. The electro-chemical results have showed after that the anodic current density Tc and Im were reduced remarkably.
