Energetic particles above sputter threshold are capable of inducing damage either by recoil generation or through compound formation. This is studied as a basis for future work by irradiation of a metal coated quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) to At+ ions and a mixture of N+/N2+ ions. Frequency changes of QCM were used to measure the thickness loss or gain for sputtering or compound formation induced implantation respectively. Nitrogen ions were found to implant resulting in a nitride.
