The charging kinetics of Al2O3 (sapphire) and SiO2 (α-quartz) dielectrics irradiated by inert gas ions (Ar+), metal ions (Ga+), and protons (H+) has been studied. It has been found that charging kinetics depends considerably on the type of irradiating ion. Also, it has been established that preirradiation of a dielectric target by an ionizing corpuscular radiation (protons, ions) substantially changes the charge characteristics of the dielectric surface. These differences depend on irradiating ion energy, which governs the depth of an accumulated negative charge layer versus the depth of ion preimplantation.
