Material modification and nanostructuring by swift heavy ions

Ishikawa, Norito  

Radiation damage due to irradiation with swift heavy ions (SHI) with the energy above 1 MeV/u has many different features compared to that due to irradiation with electrons and neutrons. One of the well-known phenomena related to SHI irradiation is formation of ion tracks. An ion track is a cylindrical region where the material near ion-path is locally modified in nanometric scale. Ion tracks are of great interest in a wide variety of research fields including nuclear materials science, physics of ion-solid interaction, nanotechnology, archaeology and so on. Mechanism of ion track formation in inorganic materials has always been one of the central and intriguing subjects in the SHI research community. It is still challenging to untangle the related problems. In this plenary talk, I would like to concentrate on the vital part of the recent advancement so that the audience can understand the logical pathway of the latest research works.
