Zinc oxide (ZnO) materials irradiated with 350 MeV 56Fe21+ ions were studied by Raman spectroscopy, Photoluminescence spectra (PL) and Transmission electron microscope (TEM). After 56Fe21+ ion irradiation, a strong oxygen vacancy (Vo) related defect absorption peak at 576 cm−1 and an interstitial zinc (Zni) -related defect at 80 cm−1~200 cm−1 formed, and with the increase of dose, the absorption peak was obviously enhanced. Through theoretical calculation, different Raman incident light test methods wereused to determine the oxygen vacancy defect (Vo). There were no significant variation tendencies in the other Raman characteristic lines. Our results demonstrate an energy loss process contributing to the defect structure during irradiation. TEM images showed a lot of fundamental defects. But we see no distinct amorphization in the samples in the electron diffraction images, indicating that the higher energy and irradiation dose hardly affected the structure and performance of zinc oxide.
