Size characterization of ion tracks in PET and PTFE using SAXS

Schauries, Daniel; Rodriguez, Matias; Afra, Boshra; Bierschenk, Thomas; Trautmann, C.; Mudie, Stephen T.; Kluth, Patrick


Ion tracks in polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) were created by swift heavy ion irradiation and subsequently characterized using small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). Due to their reduced density compared to the surrounding matrix, cylindrical geometry, and parallel orientation, ion tracks produce a characteristic scattering pattern which allows quantitative analysis of their radius with high precision. For ion tracks in PET thermal annealing led to a gradual...[Show more]
