We have studied the microscopic structure and dynamics in a proton-irradiated K H2 P O4 single crystal. Our H1 and P31 nuclear magnetic resonance measurements indicate that proton irradiation gives rise to a decrease in the local dipolar order of the rigid lattice protons and an increase in interstitial protons as well as structural distortion of the P O4 tetrahedra.
