Structural properties of embedded Ge nanoparticles modified by swift heavy-ion irradiation

Araujo, Leandro; Giulian, Raquel; Sprouster, David; Schnohr, Claudia; Llewellyn, David; Johannessen, Bernt; Byrne, Aidan; Ridgway, Mark C


Silica-embedded Ge nanoparticles (NPs) of different sizes irradiated with swift heavy ions (SHIs) at a given energy may reportedly elongate along the incident ion direction, perpendicular to it, or not at all. Here, for a given NP size distribution, we have investigated the SHI energy dependence of the elongation process. Higher-energy irradiation generally yielded elongation along the ion track (as previously observed), but for lower-energy irradiation, elongation both parallel and...[Show more]
