Abstract
Kapton films were irradiated by high energy protons and alpha particles at the Tandem Accelerator Laboratory at McMaster University. A complementary Monte Carlo simulation has also been carried out and the results compared. The correlated results of the two investigations indicate that the surface damage in Kapton materials in space is predominantly caused by the low energy ions.
