Alloy Surface Behavior: Experimental Methods and Results

  • T. M. Buck


While the title of this conference does not mention alloy surfaces, and most of the contributions will be concerned with bulk properties of alloys, the surface behavior of alloys has received considerable attention, both theoretical and experimental. This has come about in the past 20–25 years, as new surface analysis techniques and ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) technology have been used to investigate surface phenomena important in such fields as corrosion,1 catalysis,2 microelectronics,3,4 and self-renewing coatings.5 The use of ordered alloy systems for higher temperature, high ductility applications, such as turbine blades in jet engines has generated interest in the ordered surfaces of NiA1.6
