Plastic deformation of alkali-halide crystals irradiated with the dense electron beam with the nanosecond duration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Investigations were carried out into the spatial distribution of residual mechanical stresses in KCl single crystals excited with a dense electron beam of the nanosecond duration. Macro- and microzones of plastic deformation were detected and their nature explained. The acoustic waves generated by the discharges can be one of the reasons for the formation of so-called 'radiation shaking' effect.
