A Comparison Between High- and Low-Energy Ion Mixing

  • Y.-T. Cheng (a1), E.-H. Cirlin (a2), B. M. Clemens (a1) and A. A. Dow (a1)


Diffusion in a thermal spike is shown to be the dominant mechanism for both high- and low-energy ion mixing. The similarity between high- and low-energy ion mixing is the result of the fractal nature of collision cascades.
