We report on the structural and vibrational properties of Co nanoparticles formed by ion
implantation and thermal annealing in amorphous silica. The evolution of the nanoparticle size,
phase, and structural parameters were determined as a function of the formation conditions using
transmission electron microscopy, small-angle x-ray scattering, and x-ray absorption spectroscopy.
The implantation fluence and annealing temperature governed the spherical nanoparticle size and
phase. To...[Show more]
