Abstract

The present work reports the change in the oxygen content in energetic ion irradiated fullerene films. The oxygen contents in irradiated films have been studied using on-line elastic recoil detection analysis (ERDA) and off-line X-ray photo electron emission (XPS) and nuclear reaction analysis (NRA) techniques. The XPS and NRA techniques show that the oxygen content increases with ion fluence, whereas on-line ERDA measurements reveal that the oxygen content decreases with ion fluence. These experiments give clear evidence that oxygen content in irradiated films increases after exposure to the atmospheric oxygen. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
