ABSTRACT
Irradiation of borosilicate glass at temperatures between 80 and 150 K with a beam of 129Xe ions of 360 MeV produces macroscopically visible plastic flow without any cracks. With respect to this effect the brittle borosilicate glass behaves in the same way as ductile metallic glasses. Even the quantitative details are surprisingly comparable. It is suggested that ion-beam-induced plastic flow will occur virtually in every amorphous material.
