Crystalline copper nanoparticles (NPs) were formed in silica by multi-energy MeV ion implantations and then transformed to amorphous NPs by irradiation with 5 MeV Sn3+ ions. Optical absorptionspectra of both the phases were evaluated in the ultra-violet to near-infrared regions. Compared with corresponding crystalline NPs of the same mean diameter, the amorphous NPs showed a low-energy shift of the surface plasmon resonance around 2.2 eV and less prominent absorptionstructure around 4 eV. These...[Show more]
