Combined SIMS and Electron Spectroscopy Investigation of the Chemical State of Some Ion-Implanted Transition Metals and Steels
Several transition metal substrates and steel specimens were ion-implanted with various species including nitrogen, chromium, and titanium at doses from 1016 to 1018 atoms/cm2. The purpose of the implantation study was to modify the surfaces of the materials in order to improve their resistance to wear, fatigue, and corrosion [1,2].
