This paper is concerned with the surface treatment of steels by a high power ion beam generated in microsecond plasma opening switch (MPOS). Investigated are modified surface properties of stainless steel, carbon steel, and pure iron whereby the optimal regimes for irradiation were defined. An increase in microhardness up to 1.5-2 times was obtained. The numerical calculations and theoretical estimates of the ion beam-matter interaction were also made.
