THE SURFACE REACTIVITY OF TI-CU AND TI-AL ALLOYS AND THE ION CHEMISTRY OF THEIR OXIDE OVERLAYERS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The surface chemistry of Ti36Cu64 and Ti36Al64 alloys has been examined by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) after: (a) preparation by co-condensation at room temperature, (b) vacuum annealing to pre-selected temperatures, and (c) thermal oxidation in 0.67 Pa(510-3 Torr) O2. The respective alloys are compared to one another with respect to their surface segregation and oxide formation properties. Particular attention is given to the nature of the surface film that develops at the various conditions and to the ionic reactions and ion movements that are involved. 1990.
