The effect of plastic deformation on positron lifetime spectra in alkali halides

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Research units


Positron lifetime spectra have been measured in plastically deformed KCl and NaCl single crystals. The experiments indicate that a third component of the order of 2 nsec is produced by the deformation, and its relative intensity (2–4%) is only weakly dependent on the degree of deformation.
