Abstract

Intense irradiation (25-40 A/cm2) at intermediate energy (400 keV) has been found to cause "metallisation" of tungsten oxide and titanium niobate crystal surfaces. The possible mechanisms and the likely consequences for high-resolution imaging of clean oxide surfaces are briefly discussed.
