    The current-voltage characteristics of an 8-μm-thick Kapton-H sample irradiated by a 45-keV penetrating electron beam have been measured for a range of beam current densities (1-12 nA/cm2). The experimental results are consistent with a model which predicts the current to be dependent linearly on voltage at low voltage (ohmic regime), quadratically at intermediate voltages (space-cha...

    A mathematical model for backscatter gauge detector characteristics (in their working environment) has produced a simple but precise null balance design for the backscatter measurement of density. This technique uses an equal-count principle which gives the method an independence from characteristic distortion as well as minimizing the systematic errors. The advantages of the moving-source gauge a... View full abstract»

    The effect of impregnating capacitor-grade polypropylene film with an aromatic hydrocarbon fluid is examined with a view towards assessing the response under radiation of the relevant properties of the film. Monoisopropyl biphenyl (MIPB)-impregnated polypropylene film was exposed in air to 1-MeV electrons at different dose rates and the post-radiation effects on the electrical, mechanical, morphol...

    A computer model to evaluate radiation damage on AlGaAs-based solar cells is reported. The model is based on a piecewise approach that divides the cell structure in an adaptive number of slices. Inside a particular slice the semiconductor parameters are constant; consequently, it is easy to find an analytical solution of the semiconductor transport equations with suitable boundary conditions for t...
