Positrons emitted from 22Na induce irradiation
damage in polymer - intensity of the longestlived component I3 decreases gradually with the
measurement time.
Small dose of irradiation deposing (~ 1kGy e+ and
102 Gy )– large effect on I3 = I3 (t) (t ~ 10 h)
3 not effected by positron source irradiation

Time dependence of the o-Ps intensity I3 in HDPE (crystallinity
57%). Data collected at 300 K. The measurement was discontinued
(sample separated from positron source) at point a) for 10 days, at
point b) – for 2 days, and at point c) – for 17 days – process
partially recoverable

The DFP model well described the HDPE lifetime
spectra collected at room temperature
The positronium formation seems to be connected
with positron trapping in free volume at vicinity of
a negative charge
The decrease in efficiency of Ps formation with the
time of measurement (=time of sample irradiation)
is due to scavenging of quasi-free electrons by
free radicals induced by the source irradiation
