Small Angle Scattering from Oriented Latent Nuclear Tracks. D. Albrecht, P. Armbruster, R. Spohr, M. Roth, K. Schaupert, H. Stuhrmann. Nuclear Inst. and Methods in Physics Research, B 2, vol. 230, no.1-3, pp. 702 - 705, (1984).

Using X-ray and neutron small-angle scattering we studied the defects in mica created by irradiation with uranium ions delivered from the UNILAC accelerator at GSI (Darmstadt, Germany). The defects are regions of reduced density and are best described as cylinders with Gaussian radial density distribution. Scaling laws are given for the time development and the energy dependence of the track parameters.
