The effect of Cr- and Y-ion implantation on the oxidation behaviour of PM Ni(3)Al
Ni(3)Al intermetallic alloys have been investigated as a potential structural material for applications at elevated temperatures. This study reports on the effect of chromium ion-implantation and yttrium ion-implantation on the oxidation behaviour of a boron doped Ni(3)Al intermetallic alloy (obtained through a powder metallurgical route) at 585 C and 900 C under isothermal and cyclic conditions for up to 200 h. The results showed that in both conditions yttrium-implantation causes slightly higher oxidation rates from the earliest stages of oxidation. Chromium-ion implantation, however, considerably decreases the oxidation rate especially at the lower temperature. The influence of ion implantation is also manifested by significant differences in both the surface morphology and cross-sectional views of the scale.
