Computer Studies of Replacement Sequences in Solids Associated with Atomic Displacement Cascades

  • D. K. Holmes
  • M. T. Robinson


Focussed sequences of replacement collisions have been studied, especially in association with radiation damage cascades. Radiation damage events are simulated using a computer program based on the binary collision approximation. The results are averaged over a complete set of initial directions of the primary knock-on atom for each primary energy to obtain quantities of physical interest for which the effects of replacement sequences may be made explicit. The calculations are compared with recent experimental results.
