X-ray diffraction measurements were carried out on amorphous germanium in as evaporated state and after Sb-ion implantation. Significant changes were detected between the structure factors of the two specimens. From the corresponding radial distribution functions 15 % increase of the atomic number density was established due to ion implantation. The first neighhour number is 3.6 atoms in the as evaporated state and 4.1 atoms after ion implantation. These results suggest that a more dense amorphous structure forms in consequence of ion bombardment.
