Radionuclide tracers were ion implanted with three different techniques into the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene polymer. Tracer nuclei of 7Be were produced with inverse kinematics via the reaction p(7Li,7Be)n and caught by polymer samples at a forward scattering angle with a maximum implantation energy of 16 MeV. For the first time, 97Ru, 100Pd, and, independently, 111In have been used as radionuclide tracers in ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. 97Ru and 100Pd were...[Show more]
