Abstract

We have investigated the structure of ion tracks in magnesium aluminate spinel (MgAl2O4) and ceria (CeO2) irradiated with 200 MeV Xe ions. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) techniques have shown that ion tracks in both materials retain crystallinity. The atomic density inside the core damage region of ion tracks is decreased to generate interstitial atoms at the peripheral region. Overlap of high-density electronic excitation at high fluence has revealed the development of dislocation structure in both MgAl 2O4 and ceria CeO2: the preferential occupation of cations in tetrahedral sites was found in MgAl2O4, and the formation of small sub-grains was observed in CeO2.
