ABSTRACT
We report here a method of iron cementation. By irradiating pure iron substrates in a methane atmosphere with a pulsed excimer laser, a rather thick and polycrystalline cementite layer was obtained. The characterization of the treated samples, carried out by means of Mo¨ssbauer spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry and nanoindentation, indicates a layer thickness of about 1 μm. A possible mechanism for the cementite formation after laser irradiation in methane atmosphere is proposed. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.

    The changes in the superconducting properties of in situ pulsed laser deposited Y1Ba2Cu3O7-x thin films caused by irradiation with 200 keV He+ ions are due to both oxygen loss as well as oxygen and cationic displacements induced by the irradiation. This is demonstrated by a study of the recovery...

    Copper plates are irradiated with pulsed laser light on one side, and the opposite side is investigated with a scanning tunneling microscope. It is found that the submicrorelief of the back surface changes after irradiation. During irradiation it emits a light pulse. It is established that a...

    Abstract. The evolution of the deposition rate during pulsed laser deposition of hydroxyapatite coatings with a KrF excimer-laser was studied. This evolution was related to the changes produced on the target morphology during laser irradiation. Laser fluences in the 1.0-5.2 J/cm[sup 2] range,...
