Abstract

Small solid precipitates (bubbles) of xenon in an aluminum matrix have been formed by ion implantation. Lattice images of this room-temperature inert gas solid were obtained using high-resolution phase-contrast electron microscopy. Many bubbles showed a high degree of crystalline perfection, but regions of defective crystallinity were observed in several cases.
