Abstract
AN INVESTIGATION IS PROPOSED THAT WILL EXAMINE THE SCIENTIFIC FUNDAMENTALS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FABRICATION OF AMORPHOUS METALLIC FILMS AND COATINGS USING DEEPLY PENETRATING HIGH ENERGY ION BEAM MIXING. THE TECHNICAL APPROACH WILL MAKE USE OF THE SO-CALLED STRUCTURAL DIFFERENCE RULE FOR AMORPHOUS ALLOY FORMATION BY ION MIXING.THE RESULTS OF THIS WORK WILL BE EVALUATED IN TERMS OF ITS USE IN SURFACE PASSIVATION AGAINST EROSIVE AND CORROSIVE PITTING OF MATERIALS IN APPLICATIONS INVOLVING EXPOSURE TO ELECTRO-HYDRODYNAMIC AND CORROSIVE FLUID DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENTS. THE PRINCIPAL APPLICATION EVALUATION WILL BE AS A PROTECTIVE COATING FOR CRITICAL PARTS AND SUBASSEMBLIES USED IN HIGH SPEED INK JET PRINTER HEADS FOR ADVANCED GRAPHICS TECHNOLOGY. SECONDARY APPLICATIONS WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARD DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTRODE SURFACES USED IN RAPIDLY PULSED ELECTRONIC PLASMA SWITCHES AND ALSO FOR DEVELOPMENT OF COATINGS AND FINISHES FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY INFRARED LASER MIRRORS.
