Ion beam materials modification and characterization

Materials for fusion applications are modifed and chareacterized by ion implantation and elastic recoil detection analysis. The tritium retention properties in tungsten in fusion reactors are simulated by deuterium atom implantation and post annealing methods.

Compostion of thin ALD grown inorganic and polymer films are analyzed.

Particle induced X-ray emission analysis is being applied for environmental studies by tree ring analysis and archeological atrefacts such as pieces of pottery. Forensic studies of by PIXE is applied for pigment analysis of paintings and origin determination of glass shreds.
