Abstract: The threshold energies of electron-stimulated desorption of N2 and O2 from polycrystalline W in vacuum (1×10-3 Pa) at T=300 K are measured. For O2-W couple, the threshold energy is about 15.5 eV; For N2-W couple, the threshold energy is about 13.8 eV. The displacement adsorption of N2 by O2 from the surface of polycrystalline W is studied using the measured threshold energy. The result shows that within a given time interval, N2 could be displaced by O2 on the surface of W, but the opposite process could not occur.
