With the aim of developing a new class of wear-resistant nanocomposites, eutectic silumin was exposed to micro- and submillisecond intense electron beam irradiation with surface melting. Due to such modification, which provides high-rate solidification, a submicro-nanocrystalline structure with enhanced strength was formed in a silumin surface layer of up to 500 μm thick. The elemental composition and the defect structure of the irradiated material were analyzed by scanning and transmission electron microscopy, and its phase and lattice states were studied by X-ray diffraction analysis.
