Ion beam formation and modification of Cobalt nanoparticles

Sprouster, David John


This thesis has investigated the structural and vibrational properties of ion beam synthesized Co nanoparticles (NPs) and the influence of ion irradiation on the size, shape, crystallographic phase and structure. The evolution of the aforementioned properties were determined using a combination of laboratory and synchrotron based techniques, including cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy (TEM), small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). The results...[Show more]
