Abstract : Impurity metal ions (sodium, aluminum, chromium, and gold) were diffused (and grown) into oxide films on silicon which were then exposed to 1,000,000 rads of ionizing radiation from a cobalt-60 source. The effects of radiation were observed by chemical analysis (to determine ion transport) and by conductance and capacitance measurements (to determine oxide charge and distribution of surface state density).
