Defect Densities Using the Positron Annihilation Doppler Broadening Technique in Wrought Alloys 3003 and 3005


Article Preview

Positron Annihilation Doppler Broadening Spectroscopy (PADPS) is one of the nuclear techniques used in material science. PADPS measurements are used to study the behavior of defect concentration and dislocation density in a set of 3003 and 3005 wrought aluminum alloy. It has been shown that positrons can become trapped at imperfect locations in solids. The S-parameter can be influenced by changes in the concentration of such defects. There is no observed change in the Sparameter values after the saturation of defect concentration. The S-parameter and trapping rates for the samples deformed up to 10 percent were studied. The concentration of defect range varies from 1017 to 1018 cm-3 and from 1016 to 1017 cm-3 for 3003 and 3005 wrought Al alloy respectively. While trapping rate range varies from 1 x1010 to 1.2x1011 s-1 for 3003 and from 1 x109 to 1.2x1010 s-1 for 3005 wrought Al alloy.
