Formation of face-centered cubic titanium on a Ni single crystal and in Ni/Ti multilayers

  • Alan F. Jankowski (a1) and Mark A. Wall (a1)


The artificial layering of metals can change both physical and structural characteristics from the bulk. The stabilization of polymorphic metallic phases can occur on a dimensional scale that ranges from single overgrowth layers to repetitive layering at the nanoscale. The sputter deposition of crystalline titanium on nickel, as both a single layer and in multilayer form, has produced a face-centered cubic phase of titanium. The atomic structure of the face-centered cubic titanium phase is examined using high resolution electron microscopy in combination with electron and x-ray diffraction.
