We have measured the evolving three-dimensional 3D morphology of patterned SiO2 stripes on Si
substrates induced by 3 MeV O++
ion irradiation. We develop a 3D constitutive relation to describe
anisotropic deformation, densification, and flow. We use this constitutive relation in a finite element
model that simulates the experimental morphology evolution, and we find excellent agreement
between simulated and measured profiles. The model should be useful in predicting morphology
evolution in complex three-dimensional structures under MeV ion irradiation. 2006 American
