Investigation results of element and structure-phase analysis of near surface layers of Cu single crystals with (100)- and (111)-surface crystallographic orientation after high-dose titanium-ion implantation and subsequent high-current electron-beam irradiation are presented. A shift of the concentration maximum into the substrate depth was observed under increased implantation dose, that contradicted some experimental and theoretical results. This effect relates to the influence of a surface film of impurities (C,O) on the process of sputtering. Electron-microscopy investigations demonstrated a complex structure of an implanted copper layer including an amorphous carbon film, a titanium-carbide sublayer, deeper titanium-carbide sublayer with a second-phase δ-CuTi segregations, which was followed by a large-grain crystallite Cu layer. High-current electron-beam irradiation did not result in the formation of new phases; however, a depth of the near-surface defect-containing layer is increased due to the formation of a dislocation substructure.
