First PAC experiments in MAX-phases
- 205 Downloads
MAX-phases are hexagonal ternary carbides and nitrides with the general formula: M n + 1 AX n and n = 1 to 3. 111In was implanted into the two MAX compounds Ti2InC and Zr2InC. Based on the general knowledge of previous 111In implantations one expects to find the probes on the indium lattice-site in these compounds. First experiments on the annealing behaviour and the thermal stability of the indium-containing MAX-phases are reported. The observed EFGs are interpreted and first PAC-measurements under compressive stress are shown.
