Abstract

The irradiation induced defects act as strong pinning centers at very low defect concentration. The threshold field increases linearly with the defect concentration. The metastable properties are governed by the presence of such defects : a smooth threshold of non linearity becomes a switch associated with large hysteresis. The results suggest that deformable COW are arranged in domains and trapped in metastable states.
