Paper Abstract

WAXS diffraction was applied in studies of the effect of heavy ion irradiation on the content of crystalline phase in poly(ethyleneterephthalate) (PET) and poly(butyleneterephthalate)(PBT) films. A decrease of the crystalline phase content in PET and PBT films under the effect of heavy ions irradiation was discovered. The phenomenon was observed in the biaxially oriented 19 (mu) m thick PET film as well as in the non-oriented 90-100 (mu) m thick PET and PBT films. The amorphization of the films was confirmed by SAXS, DSC, and FTIR methods as well as by density measurements.
