Elemental Cu nanoparticles embedded in SiO2 were irradiated with 5 MeV Sn3+. The nanoparticle structure was studied as a function of Sn3+ fluence by extended x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy, small-angle x-ray scattering, and transmission electron microscopy. Prior to irradiation, Cu nanoparticles exhibited the face-centered-cubic structure. Upon irradiation at intermediate fluences (1× 1013 to 1× 1014 ions cm2), the first nearest neighbor Cu-Cu coordination number decreased, while...[Show more]
