Ion-Bombardment-Induced Surface Expansion of Solids

  • H. Tanoue

Surface expanding phenomena in GGG(Gd3Ga5O12) bombarded with various ions have been observed by an interferometer. An expansion model is proposed to explain the phenomena taking into account present and other investigators’ results. The effect of surface expansion on the profile of implanted ions in the substrate is discussed.
