Structural modifications of low-energy heavy-ion irradiated germanium
Heavy-ion irradiation of crystalline germanium (c-Ge) results in the formation of a homogeneous amorphous germanium (a-Ge) layer at the surface. This a-Ge layer undergoes structural modification such as a strong volume expansion accompanied by drastic surface blackening with further ion irradiation. In the present paper we investigate the mechanism of this ion-induced structural modification in a-Ge basically for the irradiation with I ions (3 and 9 MeV) at room and low temperature as a...[Show more]
