α-decay damage and recrystallization in natural zircon (with dose ranging from 0.06 to 23.3 × 1018 α-events g−1) were studied using polarized reflection infrared spectroscopy. The experimental results show that α-decay damage leads to a gradual decrease in reflectivity and a loss of anisotropy of IR spectra. Recrystallization of damaged zircon is found as a multi-stage process with a strong dependence on the initial degree of damage. In weakly and moderately damaged samples the major… CONTINUE READING
