Abstract

A new absorption feature was observed in the infrared spectrum of solid deuterium under proton irradiation. This absorption which appeared only below 12 K, was attributed to allow transitions of electrons in traps in the solid polycrystal. The growth and decay of the absorption relative to the time of initiation and termination of the proton beam were examined and related to the proton current density.
