This book from MRS discusses the evolution of a material's microstructure as a result of its interaction with energetic particles such as ions, neutrons or electrons. The book is inter-disciplinary and emphasizes all classes of materials including metals, intermetallic compounds, ceramics, polymers, superconductors, semiconductors and insulators. A strong focus is placed on experimental techniques for measuring and quantifying damage and microstructure changes, and on computer simulation techniques for predicting and understanding this phenomena. Topics include: ion-implantation damage in semiconductors; radiation damage in metals; radiation damage in ceramics; radiation effects in polymers and beam-induced effects.
