Swift heavy-ion irradiation-induced shape and structural transformation in cobalt nanoparticles

Sprouster, D. J.; Giulian, R.; Araujo, L. L.; Kluth, P.; Johannessen, B.; Cookson, D. J.; Ridgway, M. C.


The shape and structural evolution of Co nanoparticles embedded in SiO₂ and subjected to swift heavy-ion irradiation have been investigated over a wide energy and fluence range. Modifications of the nanoparticle size and shape were characterized with transmission electron microscopy and small-angle x-ray scattering.Nanoparticles below a threshold diameter remained spherical in shape and progressively decreased in size under irradiation due to dissolution.Nanoparticles above the threshold...[Show more]
