Abstract

High energy heavy ions are proving to be important tools in the efforts to modify the properties of materials in a controlled fashion to provide possibility of making them functional for specific applications in planned developments towards futuristic technologies. Presently, research in this field is mostly of exploratory kind. Various types of materials are being irradiated with swift heavy ions and the effects of irradiation are being studied using the sophisticated characterization tools, such as XRD, RBS, ERDA, High resolution transmission microscopy, Photoluminescence spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared and Raman spectroscopy, SQUID, AFM, SEM, etc.

Keywords

Light Emit Diode Resistive Switching Resistance Random Access Memory Magnetic Tunnel Junction Perpendicular Magnetic Anisotropy 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
