Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The mixing of Pt and Si marker atoms in Ge during 750-kev Xe irradiation was measured at temperatures between 6 and 500 K. The low-temperature measurements show that the mixing parameter for Pt is nearly twice that for Si. This result is in strong contradiction to the collisional theory of ion beam mixing. A weak temperature dependence in the mixing is found for both markers.
