Abstract:

The relationship between radiation damage in a thin platelet, high purity, single-crystal cadmium sulfide crystal and the change in the physical dimensions of the crystal was investigated. The sample was irradiated in a vacuum at 77K and 300K by a 150 keV electron beam just above the beam displacement threshold for the sulfur atom of 115 keV. The shrinkage and its ultimate saturation suggest the diffusion of sulfur interstitials from the crystal with an accompanying accumulation of sulfur vacancies in the lattice. The difference in the results at 77K and at 300K indicate an annealing of the damage somewhere between the two temperatures. Author
