In the present work, the results of slow positron beam spectroscopy (SPBS) study of carbonization in high-dose (2.5 × 1016, 3.75 × 1016, and 5.0 × 1016 ions/cm2) 40 keV boron-ion-implanted polymethylmethacrylate (B:PMMA) and formation of metal nanoparticles in high-dose (2.5 × 1016 and 1.0 × 1017 ions/cm2) 30 keV silver-ion-implanted polymethylmethacrylate (Ag:PMMA) are reviewed. The features between carbonization and formation of metal nanoparticles processes in ion-implanted B:PMMA and Ag:PMMA as revealed from SPBS measurements of S(E) parameter, SRIM simulation and other proper techniques are considered.
