The induced damage in single crystals of Sodium sulphanilate dihydrate (SSDH) irradiated at IUAC, New Delhi with 15 MV Pelletron accelerator with 100 MeV Ag7+ and 70 MeV Li3+ ions has been studied by optical measurements, mechanical hardness measurements, Electrical and ERDA measurements. Optical absorption measurements increase with the increase in fluence. The mechanical hardness of the crystal decreases on irradiation. The dielectric constant of SSDH increases on irradiation.
