Abstract

The dynamical stabilization of Ag-Cu nanocomposites by ion-beam processing was analyzed. The characterstics of irradiation mixing in a Ag-Cu alloy subjected to bombardment with 62 KeV He and other ions was studied by molecular dynamics. Further the lattice kinetic Monte Carlo simulations was also performed. The analysis showed that a nanocomposite structure can be stabilized at steady state by irradiation with heavy ions(Ne,Ar and Kr) but not with He ions.
