The slow-positron beam technique - a tool for the study of vacancy-type defects in semiconductors Diffusion and Defect Data Part B (Solid State Phenomena) () R. Krause-Rehberg, H. S. Leipner, T. Abgarjan, and A. Polity.   Within the last decade powerful methods have been developed to study surfaces using bright low-energy positron beams. These novel analysis tools exploit the unique properties of positron interaction with surfaces, which comprise the absence of exchange interaction, repulsive crystal potential and positron trapping in delocalized surface states at low energies. By applying reflection high.

The free volume sizes and distributions and multilayer structures in asymmetric thin layer polyamide membranes in the wet state have been first time measured using the variable monoenergy slow positron beam (VMSPB). This paper presents a newly developed method which combines the technique of plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition to form a barrier layer for high-vacuum condition to seal .

The zone below the surface in pure Zr exposed to dry sliding is the subject of studies using positron lifetime methods.

New type of the defect depth profile is observed. The paper presents studies of the defect distribution, detected by the positron annihilation method in the subsurface zone (SZ) of copper samples after dry sliding wear. It takes advantage of a new experimental technique based on scanning of the positron implantation by: 9.

The surface degradation was also shown by the positron studies to be permanent, even after hydrophobic recovery, the silica-like degradation layers persists.

The annealing behavior of the subsurface zone (SZ) in pure bismuth induced by dry sliding was studied using the positron lifetime measurement.

This measurement allows us to detect the SZ and its recovery, and recrystallization processes. The comparative measurements of the sample exposed to compression revealed the thermal stability of the SZ.

A new pulsed mono-energetic slow positron beam as well as the conventional positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS) have been applied to study the sub-surface and the bulk of epoxy polymer. Significant changes of o-Ps parameters were found at a short distance from the surface.

The lifetime of o-Ps was observed to decrease with increasing the positron implantation depth, while its.

Being the antimatter equivalent ofelec- trons, positrons have precisely the same massandspin as electrons, butprecisely the opposite charge and magnetic mo- ment (3). We describe an apparatus for producing an intense low energy positron beam of well defined energy by moderating the decay positrons from a radioactive source using a clean single crystal convertor with high conversion efficiency (ε≃10 −3).These positrons are used as a probe to study well characterized surfaces in an ultra‐high vacuum system.

Positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS) is an experimental technique whereby the lifetime spectrum of positrons injected into a material is measured. Analysis of this spectrum can be used to characterize defects in the material.

While radioisotope positron sources are often used for PALS, there are several advantages of using mono-energetic, slow positron beams. A pulsed slow-positron beam, enabling positron lifetime studies in thin semiconductor layers and near-surface regions, is presented.
