Abstract : Research Office Contract DAAL-03-89-G-0104. Accomplishments during this four year period include building up an operational plasma ion implantation facility, the successful plasma ion implantation of aluminum and stainless steel with nitrogen ions, and the demonstration of significantly increased corrosion resistance and pitting potential in these metals. During the course of exploratory research activities, the regimes of ion energy, implantation voltage, and dose were identified which produced significantly improved corrosion resistance, and techniques for plasma ion implantation and corrosion resistance testing were perfected.
