Threshold Energy for Atomic Displacement in Radiation Damage

  • Peter Jung


Threshold energies for atomic displacement as obtained from electron irradiation of solids are reviewed and compared to other properties of these materials. Experimental problems as, e.g., influence of impurities are discussed. Results on the dependence of threshold energy on irradiation direction and irradiation temperature are given.
