Thin layer activation for materials research and development at IAM of the European Commission
After a short description of the cyclotron of the European Commission Institute for Advanced Materials (IAM)-Ispra site (Italy) and its activities, an overview of the thin layer activation (TLA) technique is given. The use of TLA for materials studies is illustrated with examples of ongoing research within the IAM. Notably this includes corrosion studies and laboratory and industrial wear testing. Due to its specific properties, including area selectivity, high sensitivity and speed in addition to the possibility for in-situ and on-line monitoring, TLA can contribute significantly to monitor surface degradation in both research and industrial applications.
