    • Abstract


      The samples of SR-86 polymer were irradiated with12C5+ ions of energy 5·0 MeV/u using fluences of 1011−1014 ions/cm2 at NSC Pelletron in a high vacuum scattering chamber. The optical studies show an increase in absorption of UV or IR in the shorter wavelength region (250–500 nm). The study also reveals that the increase in radiation dose extends the optical absorption region to longer wavelengths. It is observed that the bulk etch rate of this polymer is enhanced after heavy ion irradiation.
