Abstract:Anomalous X-ray transmission (Borrmann) measurements were made at 4.2 K on nearly perfect copper single crystals before and after irradiation at 20 K with 3 MeV electrons (total integrated flux 0.B7 X 101B electrons/em2). The intensity in the diffracted direction was measured for the (111), (222), (333), and (220) reflecting planes. The measured intensity changes were 1.15 t ,4%, 4.52 ± .6%, 8.90 ± .8%, and 4.06 + .8% respectively. A comparison of the observed intensity changes with theoretical predictions, assuming that the damage consists of isolated interstitials and vacancies, and using previously calculated displacements associated with these defects, indicates that the interstitial is not in the split (100) configuration. Possible configurations are the body centered interstitial or the split (111) interstitial. Measurements after annealing at BOoK and 3000K were made. The measurements indicated that defect clusters were formed when the irradiated crystal was heated to 80oK, and some clusters remained after annealing at room temperature.
