Energy dependent saturation width of swift heavy ion shaped embedded Au nanoparticles
The transformation of Aunanoparticles (NPs) embedded in SiO₂ from spherical to rod-like shapes induced by swift heavy ion irradiation has been studied. Irradiation was performed with ¹⁹⁷Au ions at energies between 54 and 185 MeV. Transmission electron microscopy and small angle x-ray scatteringmeasurements reveal an energy dependent saturation width of the NP rods as well as a minimum size required for the NPs to elongate. The NP saturation width is correlated with the ion track diameter in the...[Show more]
