Abstract

The gelation phenomenon induced by swift ions in macromolecular systems is studied by Monte Carlo simulation. The simulation is based on a percolation model which tries to take into account all chemical bonds produced by the ion beam. The critical point of gelation and the gel fraction as a function of the ion fluence is calculated with the parameters of polystyrene in order to compare the results with experimental data published earlier by Calcagno et al. [Phys. Rev. B 46 (1992) 10573]. As a result of the comparison information about the structure of the macromolecular gel is obtained.
