摘要：Isotropic pyrolytic carbon (IPyC) prepared at 1300 °C by chemical vapor deposition was implanted with129Xe26+ions to obtain a wide range of information and understanding about the coating materials in nuclear energy field. Microstructure of the pristine and ion-implanted IPyC on nuclear graphite substrate was firstly investigated using polarized light microscopy, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, nanoindentation, and X-ray photoemission spectroscopy. It was demonstrated that the Xe ion irradiation resulted in concurrent changes in both physical and chemical structures of our standard polycrystalline sample. Influences of the thermal annealing temperature on the properties of the implanted IPyC at 500 and 1000 °C were also studied. Ion-irradiation gave rise to the formation of structural deterioration along a and c axis, accompanying with the appearance of widespread clastic morphology among the irradiated zone of IPyC. There was a dose window that could be used to tune the mechanical properties of IPyC: the nanohardness and Young's modulus increased after an irradiation, but decreased as the amorphization was reached.
