Investigation of ion-track morphology and annealing behavior using small-angle X-ray scattering

Afra, Boshra


When heavy ions with energies in the range of hundreds of MeV to GeV penetrate a solid, they lose their energy through inelastic interactions with the target electrons and can leave narrow cylindrical trails of permanent damage along their path, known as ion tracks. Ion tracks are typically a few nanometers in diameter and can be up to tens of micrometers long. When these tracks are annealed at elevated temperatures, they shrink in size and eventually the damage inside the material can recover....[Show more]
