Methods of diffraction electron microscopy of thin foils are used to study layer by layer nickel subjected to electrical explosion alloying with boron. The formed structure is shown to have a pronounced gradient character induced by an in-depth change of boron concentration in the layer modified during surface treatment. As receding from the alloyed surface, the structure of the molten zone varies from the nano- to submicro- and macrocrystalline structure with different volume fractions and chemical phase composition.
