The effect of irradiation by H+ ions on surface modifications of metallic glass Fe40Ni40B20, in the as-quenched, structurally related and crystallized state, has been studied. Swollen regions develop on the surface of the as-quenched and structurally relaxed specimens, whereas blisters form on the surface of the crystallized specimen, under identical conditions of irradiation. The results are explained in terms of the distribution of hydrogen in the amorphous and crystallized conditions.
