Abstract

A new thermal spike model is presented which predicts three regimes in the formation of latent tracks. At Se≦Set no track formation is expected. A logarithmic and a linear variation of the damage cross section versus Se is predicted for 2.7Set≧Se≧Set and Se≧Set, respectively. A simple expression is derived for the relation between Set and the thermal properties of the target. A comparison is made with experimental data on YIG and NiFe2O4 and a good agreement is found.
