Vacuum and color etching usage for titanium alpha-alloys structure analysis

O.S. Sergienko, V.V. Lunev, G.A. Bialik
Theoretical grounds and method of two-stage vacuum and color etching of titanium alpha-alloys are described. The advantages of proposed methods as opposed to conventional chemical etching are empathized.
