Abstract

Some soft magnetic metallic glasses are considered for use in magnetic cores of accelerator radio frequency cavities. Due to losses of the circulating ion beam, they may be exposed to irradiation by different ions at different energies. This paper presents data and review results of irradiation experiments concerning the influence of high-energy heavy ions on magnetic susceptibility of VITROPERM®-type metallic glasses. Samples of the VITROPERM® magnetic ribbons were irradiated by Au, Xe and U ions at 11.1 MeV/A (per nucleon) and 5.9 MeV/A, respectively. Irradiation fluences from 1 x 1011 up to 1 x 1013 ions/cm2 were applied. In case of the Au and U ions, the total fluence was accumulated in one beamtime, whereas two separate beamtimes were used to accumulate the final fluence in case of the Xe ions. Relative change in the samples' magnetic susceptibility after and before irradiation was evaluated as a function of the irradiation fluence. The irradiation experiments were performed with the UNILAC accelerator at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH. They were simulated in SRIM2010 in order to obtain ionization densities (electronic stopping, dE/dx) and dpa (displacements per atom) caused by the ion beams in the sample material. This paper focuses mainly on the results collected in experiments with the Xe ions and compares them with data obtained in earlier experiments using Au and U ions. Radiation hardness of VITROPERM® is compared with radiation hardness of VITROVAC® that was studied in previous experiments. The VITROPERM® samples showed less drop in magnetic susceptibility in comparison with the VITROVAC® ones, and this drop occurred at higher fluences. This indicates higher radiation hardness of VITROPERM® compared with VITROVAC®. In addition, heavier ions cause bigger change in magnetic susceptibility than the lighter ones. The effect can be roughly scaled with electronic stopping, which suggests that the main mechanism of radiation damage is associated with swift electrons generated in the material via ionization by primary heavy ions.
