The thermal spike model is examined with a linear temperature-dependent specific heat. The predicted microvolume of melted material in this case is not significantly different from that predicted with constant specific heat. This result indicates that the thermal spike calculation, as presented here, is not strongly dependent on the variation of physical properties with temperature.
