Title: Microstructural, mechanical and optical properties research of a carbon ion-irradiated Y 2SiO 5 crystal

Ion irradiation has been a popular method to modify properties of different kinds of materials. Ion-irradiated crystals have been studied for years, but the effects on microstructure and optical properties during irradiation process are still controversial. In this study, we used 6 MeV C ions with a fluence of 1 × 10 15 ion/cm 2 irradiated Y 2SiO 5 (YSO) crystal at room temperature, and discussed the influence of C ion irradiation on the microstructure, mechanical and optical properties of YSO crystal by Rutherford backscattering/channeling analyzes (RBS/C), X-ray diffraction patterns (XRD), Raman, nano-indentation test, transmission and absorption spectroscopy, the prism coupling and the end-facet coupling experiments. We also used the secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) to analyze the elements distribution along sputtering depth. Finally, 6 MeV C ions with a fluence of 1 × 10 15 ion/cm 2 irradiated caused the deformation of YSO structure and also influenced the spectral properties and lattice vibrations.
