Abstract

The thermal spike model has been successfully applied to track formation by swift heavy ions in insulators. Arguments are given supporting the assumption that the thermal spike mechanism is also valid for the anisotropic growth. The glass transition temperature is used as the main thermal parameter of the amorphous solids. Experimental results on the track formation in α-quartz and in crystalline Ni3B and also on the anisotropic growth in Pyrex and Synsil glasses, in amorphous Pd80Si20, Ni3B and Fe85B15 are discussed. Good agreement is found with the predictions of the thermal spike model.
