Abstract Deuterons of 10 keV energy and protons with the same mean projected range have been implanted into several metals at a temperature of approximately 35 K and at dose rates of approximately 2 × 1014 cm−2 s−1. The amount of retained deuterium saturates at fluences larger than roughly 2 × 1018 cm−2. After implantation of deuterons and subsequent bombardment with protons, the deuteron depth profiles show characteristic double peak structures, which indicate a replacement process. The experimental data are in good agreement with a simple model of local saturation and mixing. The possible implications of this model are discussed.
