- Plasma Immersion Ion Implantation (PI3) is a recently developed Australian process that was originally perceived as an alternative non-line-of-sight ion implantation technique. In this work, several surface analytical systems were utilised to investigate the resultant microstructure of AISI 316 austenitic stainless steel treated by PI3 at a range of temperatures, and from this to gain insight into the underlying surface modification mechanism of PI3. Glancing angle X-ray diffraction (GAXD) provided surface sensitive microstructural information, while glow discharge optical emission spectrometry (GDOES) was used to determine elemental depth distributions. It has been established that PI3 is capable of producing surface structures unattainable in any other nitriding system, be it plasma nitriding or conventional nitrogen implantation.
