Abstract

The structural transformations that occur in the near-surface layer in alumina ceramics during irradiation by a pulsed electron beam generated by a forevacuum plasma electron source are studied. The modification of the surface properties of the ceramics is shown to be caused by the formation of regions consisting of close-packed and identically oriented crystallites within every grain. The crystallites are elongated: their length and width are 0. 5-1. 5 μm and the transverse size is 0. 1-0. 2 μm.
