(a) RBS spectra recorded on cubic zirconia crystals irradiated at RT with 4-MeV Au ions in random (stars) and -aligned (other symbols) directions (ion fluences are given in cm−2). Energy of analyzing He beam: 3.07 MeV. Solid lines are fits to experimental data with the McChasy code [21, 22]. (b) Accumulated damage () as a function of depth extracted from the fits to experimental RBS data for cubic zirconia crystals irradiated with 4-MeV Au ions at the indicated fluences.
