Improved Wear Resistance of Magnesium Alloy Irradiated by High-Intensity Pulsed Ion Beam at Lower Energy Density
HIPIB irradiation experiment is carried out at lower energy density of 0.55 J/cm2 with shot number from 1 to 10, and dry sliding wear behavior is investigated in order to explore the low energy-modification of magnesium alloy by HIPIB. It is found that HIPIB irradiation leads to the increase in surface hardness and therefore the improvement in wear resistance compared with the original sample. The improved wear resistance is mainly ascribed to the enhanced surface hardness induced by HIPIB irradiation.
