Layered ternary Ti2SnC carbides have attracted significant attention because of their ad-vantage as a M2AX phase to bridge the gap between properties of metals and ceramics. In this study, Ti2SnC materials were synthesized by two different methods—an unconventional low-energy ion facility (LEIF) based on Ar+ ion beam sputtering of the Ti, Sn, and C targets and sintering of a com-pressed mixture consisting of Ti, Sn, and C elemental powders up to 1250 °C. The Ti2SnC nanocrys-talline thin films obtained by LEIF were irradiated by Ar+ ions with an energy of 30 keV to the fluence of 1.1015 cm−2 in order to examine their irradiation-induced resistivity. Quantitative structural analysis obtained by Cs-corrected high-angle annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (HAADF-STEM) confirmed transition from ternary Ti2SnC to binary Ti0.98C carbide due to irradiation-induced β-Sn surface segregation. The nanoindentation of Ti2SnC thin nanocrys-talline films and Ti2SnC polycrystalline powders shows that irradiation did not affect significantly their mechanical properties when concerning their hardness (H) and Young’s modulus (E) We high-lighted the importance of the HAADF-STEM techniques to track atomic pathways clarifying the behavior of Sn atoms at the proximity of irradiation-induced nanoscale defects in Ti2SnC thin films.
