We present result following localized ion implantation of rutile titanium dioxide (TiO2) using anodic porous alumina as a mask. The implantation were performed with 100 keV 56Fe+ ions using a fluence of 1.3·1016 ions/cm2. The surface modifications where studied by means of SEM, AFM/MFM and XRD. A well-defined hexagonal pattern of modified material in the near surface structure is observed. Local examination of the implanted areas revealed no clear magnetic signal. However, a variation in mechanical and electrostatic behavior between implanted and non-implanted zones is inferred from the variation in AFM signals.
