We have been studying1,2 the lattice site location and microstructure of metal atom implants in Cu by channeling and transmission electron microscopy measurements. At low atomic concentration, 1 at.%, the implanted metallic species reside primarily on substitutional Cu lattice sites. It was found from the previous study that high-dose implants of Au and W in Cu (10 at.%) were in general accordance with equilibrium phase diagram criteria in that they were 100% and 0% substitutional respectively.
