Abstract:

Measurements of the sheet conductivity of ion-bombarded MoO3 and V2O5 have shown that there is a conductivity increase of many orders of magnitude for doses of about 2x10 to the 16th power to about 2x10 to the 17th power ionssq cm of 40-keV Kr, the final bulk conductivities being 20-2000hm-cm for MoO3 and 20-600ohm-cm for V2O5. Reflection electron diffraction indicates major structural changes in the irradiated materials. Author Modified Abstract
