ABSTRACT
The efficiency of interfacial ion mixing is measured for metal/Al (metal=Ti, Cr, Ni, and Mo) thin-film bilayers irradiated with 285 keV Xe+ ions near 77 K. The results indicate that, as a group, mixing of 3d-metal/Al pairs irradiated by Xe can be explained by neither a pure binary collision cascade nor a pure thermal spike model. Such a situation should exist; that it should be found at the average atomic numbers of the present bilayers is consistent with recent theoretical predictions.

    The sputter ripple formation in polycrystalline metal thin films of Al, Co, Cu, and Ag has been studied by 16.7 keV Ar+ and O2+ ion bombardment as a function of angle of ion incidence. The experimental results show the existence of a critical angle of ion incidence (θc) beyond which the...

    Well-aligned nanoneedles are found to form in a Fe/GaAs (001) epitaxial thin film when irradiated with a Ga+ ion beam normal to the sample surface at an ion dose of 3×1017/cm2 in a focused ion beam. These nanoneedles, with their axes perpendicular to the original sample surface, are composed...
