- Copper-lithium alloys ranging in composition from 3 to 12 at. % Li have been exposed to sputtering by 3 x 10/sup 16/ - 6 x 10/sup 17/ 100 eV He+/cm/sup 2/-sec at temperatures of 300 to 500/sup 0/C at the UCLA PISCES plasma device. Weight loss and optical spectroscopy techniques were used to determine the sputtering-induced erosion of the binary alloys relative to pure copper. It was found that the weight loss of the alloy and the amount of copper in the plasma as measured by emission spectroscopy never exceeded that of pure copper and in some cases was reduced by a factor of five or more. Post-irradiation analysis by Auger electron spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy show a correlation between lithium surface depletion, surface roughening, weight loss, and partial erosion yields as measured by plasma emission spectroscopy.
