The phase transformation of γ(fcc) to α(bcc) is observed in thin film specimens of austenitic 304 stainless steel implanted with 100 keV ions at room temperature. The orientation relationships between the induced α(bcc) and the austenitic γ(fcc) matrix are determined to be (0 1 1̄)α∥(1 1̄ 1)γ and [1 1 1]α∥[0 1 1]γ. The relationship is followed by the Kurdjumov-Sachs (K-S) rule rather than the Nishiyama-Wasserman (N-W) rule in this experiment, though the latter relationship was well observed in the previously reported experiments of implantation of austenitic stainless steels with noble gases or other heavy ions.
