Ion-implanted tungsten and copper single crystals are investigated by the perturbed angular correlation technique, using an allowed β-γ cascade in 133Xe decay. The spatial distribution function describing the orientation of the quadrupole hyperfine interaction does not show up the cubic symmetry of the lattice in the case of xenon-induced radiation damage. This conclusion is interpreted in terms of xenon-vacancy loop interaction.
