Abstract

Abstract We have derived the helium bulk diffusion constants in britholite (Ca 9Nd(PO 4) 5(SiO 4)F 2) from non-destructive 3He depth profiling using the resonant 3He(d, p) 4He nuclear reaction. Results have been obtained on a polycrystalline sintered ceramics implanted with 3 MeV 3He + ions at a depth around 9 μm then annealed in air at temperatures between 200 and 400 °C. The activation energy for helium diffusion is around 1.1 eV. These data are in good agreement with literature data based on ERDA depth profiling of 27 keV 4He + ions implanted in natural (Durango) or synthetic fluorapatite single crystals.
