Abstract

The time-resolved optical measurement of the electrostrictive strain of an electron-irradiated copolymer of vinylidene fluoride with trifluoroethylene produced by a voltage step reveals a short risetime response followed by a decay with a one second relaxation time. The decay is attributed to a rearrangement of the charge distribution in the irradiated material that tends to cancel the applied field.
