Fink, Dietmar; Muller, M; Petrov, A V; Klett, R; Palmetshofer, L; Hnatowicz, V.; Vacik, J; Cervena, J.; Chadderton, Lewis


The penetration of aqueous6Li+ markers into low energy ion irradiated polyimide (PI) foils was examined by the neutron depth profiling technique in combination with a modified tomographic approach. The ion irradiation always leads to an enhancement in marker uptake. After irradiation at low fluence the marker profiles follow the nuclear damage distribution even in three dimensions. At elevated fluences saturation in the marker uptake is clearly seen. The polymer's penetrant uptake can be...[Show more]
