Irradiation performance of multilayer HBC foils which layers are more than 20 were conducted for the first time, and different types of carbon stripper foils were dosed under a series of irradiation conditions systematically. Eight (8) types of carbon stripper foils were striked by Ar4+ beam under different intensities and fluences. Multilayer foils performed generally better than the monolayer ones. The existence of boron layer helped to increase the resistance of the foils to irradiation damage, elongating their lifetimes.
