Ion-irradiation-induced amorphization of cobalt nanoparticles

Sprouster, David; Giulian, Raquel; Araujo, Leandro; Kluth, Patrick; Johannessen, B; Nordlund, Kai; Kirby, N; Ridgway, Mark C


The amorphization of Co nanoparticles embedded in SiO2 has been investigated by measuring their structure and size, before and after ion irradiation, by x-ray absorption spectroscopy and small-angle x-ray scattering, respectively. Compared to bulk material, unirradiated crystalline nanoparticles exhibited increased structural disorder and a decreased average coordination number as a result of finite-size effects. Upon irradiation, there was no variation in nanoparticle size yet significant...[Show more]
