Ion Implantation and Backscattering from Oxidized Single-Crystal Copper

It is well known that small amounts of impurities in metals strongly affect their corrosion properties. In the particular case of copper, alloys containing varying amounts of aluminum are quite common, and are denominated aluminum bronzes. These alloys have improved characteristics like corrosion resistance, high strength, hardness and wear resistance. Alloys containing up to 18.4% aluminum have been studied as well as their different metallurgical phases, and their resistance to corrosion (1).
