The purpose of this work was to investigate the effects of the implantation of various metal species upon the high temperature oxidation of polycrystalline titanium and stainless steel. Oxidation was sometimes enhanced, and sometimes inhibited, to an extent correlated with the electronegativity of the implanted atoms, and increasing with ion dose. The effects were opposite in the two target materials chosen: tentative explantations are proposed.
