The present work reports the change in the oxygen content in energetic ion irradiated fullerene films. The oxygen contents in irradiated films have been studied using on-line elastic recoil detection analysis (ERDA) and off-line X-ray photo electron emission (XPS) and nuclear reaction analysis (NRA) techniques. The XPS and NRA techniques show that the oxygen content increases with ion fluence, whereas on-line ERDA measurements reveal that the oxygen content decreases with ion fluence. These experiments give clear evidence that oxygen content in irradiated films increases after exposure to the atmospheric oxygen.
