Amorphous silicon oxynitride (SiO<inf>x</inf>N<inf>y</inf>) possess interesting optical and mechanical properties. Here, we present direct evidence for the formation of ion tracks in 1 μm thick silicon oxynitride of different stoichiometries. The tracks were created by irradiation with 185 MeV Au13+ ions. The samples were studied using spectral reflectometry and Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS), with the track morphology characterised by means of small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)....[Show more]
