Elongation of metallic nanoparticles at the interface of silicon dioxide and silicon nitride

Mota-Santiago, Pablo; Kremer, Felipe; Nadzri, Allina; Ridgway, Mark; Kluth, Patrick


In the process of shape transformation of metal nanoparticles (MNPs) embedded in dielectrics resulting from swift heavy-ion irradiation, key parameters such as the energy deposition threshold, the necessity of a molten track and the NP size have been identified for amorphous silicon dioxide. The extension of such parameters to other dielectrics is yet unclear. We present experimental evidence of the shape transformation of nearly spherical NPs located at the interface of amorphous silicon...[Show more]
