Control over fine scale terrace structures induced on polycrystalline Pd by simple heat treatments in air

JM Sobral, Trevor Clyne, R Rezk & Athina Markaki
This paper presents information about the formation of terraces (often composed of relatively wide faces and relatively narrow steps between them) on samples of polycrystalline palladium. These have been formed via simple heat treatments, involving holding at 1200˚C for periods ranging from a few minutes to several hours, followed by quenching by jets of inert gas. These treatments are such that the terraces are created, and survive the cooling, without significant formation of surface oxide....
