Effects of MeV Ions on PE and PVDC

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We studied the effects of 3.5 and 5.0 MeV alpha bombardment on polyethylene and polyvinylidene chloride both of which have simple chemical structures. Using a thin polymer film stacking technique, we were able to map the effects of the MeV alpha particles in their track. The first layer of the thin polymer film stack experienced most of the effects of the electronic energy deposited and the last layer received most of the effects of the nuclear stopping. Using Raman microprobe analysis and measuring the ratio of the formation of graphene structures (G-line) to the disordered (amorphous) carbon line (D-line), we ... continued below

Description

The first layer of the thin polymer film stack experienced most of the effects of the electronic energy deposited and the last layer received most of the effects of the nuclear stopping. Using Raman microprobe analysis and measuring the ratio of the formation of graphene structures (G-line) to the disordered (amorphous) carbon line (D-line), we were able to separate the severed bond effects in the end of the alpha particles` track in the last polymer film layers from the effects of the electronic energy deposited in the first polymer film layers. The results are in agreement with our other measurements of each polymer film using FTIR, RBS and resistance measurements.
