- This study seeks to determine the strength of polyimide materials as a function gamma-ray irradiation dose at 5 K. It compares new results with those from previous studies of epoxies made under the same conditions. The most recent efforts in this program have examined the strength and other properties of pure and glass-fiber-filled polyimide materials irradiated to a dose of 100 MGy (10/sup 10/ rads). At this dose the losses in strength measured at 78 K were less than 40%, and at 300 K slight increases were observed. Overall, the glass-fiber-filled polyimide materials are 5 to 10 times more radiation resistant than glass-fiber-filled epoxy materials.
