Part of the Springer Series on Polymer and Composite Materials book series (SSPCM)

Abstract

In this chapter, we review fundamental issues related to the damaging processes of PMMA films induced by high-energy ions with kinetic energies from a few keV to a few GeV, covering the regimes of energy deposition dominated by nuclear collisions and by electronic excitation. Emphasis is given to present an overview of the bond-breaking processes, the changes in the polymer chemical structure, and the corresponding modifications in selected macroscopic physical properties (optical, mechanical, and electrical).

Keywords
