Defect and Dislocation Density Parameters of 5251 Al Alloy Using Positron Annihilation Lifetime Technique
The result of positron lifetime measurements of a defected 5251 Al alloy is reported. Positron lifetime is measured as a function of the thickness reduction of the sample which shows a nearly linear increase and then becomes constant; which can be considered to be a reason for the defect movement saturation. The trapping rate, trapping efficiency, trapping cross-section, defect concentration and defect density of positrons are also measured for the sample concerned. The behaviors of these parameters are matched with theoretical calculations. Data are analyzed using the PATFIT88 computer program.
