Ion irradiation induced crystallization in amorphous selenium films

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

4 Citations (Scopus)


The effect of laser and ion irradiation with 180 keV deuterium ions on freshly deposited and aged amorphous selenium films has been studied by optical transmission and x-ray diffraction measurements. The ion irradiation was found to cause amorphous-amorphous structural transformations and enhancement of the crystallization rate, similarly to He-Ne laser irradiation.
