The effects of pulsed electron beam irradiation (pulse width 50 ns FWHM, electron eneries from 15 to 30 keV and current density in the range of 100 to 2300 A/cm2 ) on Al-Pb systemsprepared by vacuum evaporation of Pb layers from 500 Å to 2000 Å in thickness over Al single crystals have been investigated by Rutherford backscattering (RBS) and scanning electron microscopy.

The main effects consist in a Pb loss which shows definite features as a function of the incident beam current density and in a mixing of Pb into Al which is unambiguously detected by a selective chemical etching of Pb still unreacted after irradiation.

These experimental results are discussed on the basis of some heat flow model calculations which use Monte-Carlo data for the electron depth dose function.
