Figure 1

AFM images of Xe + ion beam-eroded fused silica surfaces for E ion = 600 eV, j ion = 300 μ A/cm2 and ion incidence angle of α ion = 65 ° for increasing fluences. (a) ϕ = 2.25 × 1017 cm-2, (b) 5.62 × 1017 cm-2, (c) 1.24 × 1018 cm-2, (d) 3.37 × 1018 cm-2, (e) 6.74 × 1018 cm-2, and (f) 1.35 × 1019cm-2. The image size is 1×1 μ m2. The different height scales of the images are specified in each image. The white arrow indicates the projection of the ion beam direction.
