The paper presents research results on the formation of deep ion-modified layers of the grade DIN 1.7035 alloy steel due to a high intensity, repetitively-pulsed nitrogen ion beams with the ion current density of up to 0.5 А/сm2. The formation of a low-energy, high intensity nitrogen ion beam is based on a plasma immersion ion extraction followed by the ballistic focusing in the equipotential drift region. The nitrogen ion implantation in steel specimens is performed at a 1.2 keV energy and 450, 500, 580 and 650°С temperatures during 60 minutes. The morphology, elementary composition and mechanical properties are investigated in deep layers of steel specimens alloyed with nitrogen ions.
