Positron Irradiation Effects in HDPE during PAL Measurement at Ambient Temperature


Article Preview

The positron irradiation effect in high density polyethylene at ambient temperature is studied by positron annihilation lifetime method. The positron spectra are analyzed with a model which takes into account positron trapping and so called delayed formation of positronium (DFP). A good relationship is noticed between the rate of positron trapping and the rate of DFP.
