Erosion of metal surface under pulsed ion beams is investigated using a two-phase evaporation model. The coefficients of erosion due to evaporation are calculated for aluminum, iron and copper under irradiation by submicrosecond ion beams of carbon with the initial particle energy within the range 10-1000 keV. The ion energy and ion beam current density values of the most efficient erosive impact are determined.
