Aging effects on the nucleation of Pb nanoparticles in silica

Luce, F.P.; Kremer, Felipe; Reboh, S.; Fabrim, Z.; Sanchez, D.F.; Zawislak, F.C.; Fichtner, P


The ion beam synthesis of Pb nanoparticles (NPs) in silica is studied in terms of a two step thermal annealing process consisting of a low temperature long time aging treatment followed by a high temperature short time one. The samples are investigated by Rutherford backscattering spectrometry and transmission electron microscopy. The results obtained show that highly stable Pb trapping structures are formed during the aging treatment. These structures only dissociate at high temperatures,...[Show more]
