The orientation and morphology of platinum precipitates in sapphire

Santala, Melissa; Radmilovic, Velimir; Giulian, Raquel; Ridgway, Mark C; Gronsky, Ronald; Glaeser, Andreas M


The orientation relationship, crystallography and structure of heterointerfaces influence their energy, and collectively these interface properties can exert a profound effect on a wide range of multiphase-material properties. In this study, stable interfaces were identified and relative interfacial energies were determined in a model oxide-metal system from measurements of the shapes of Pt inclusions in a sapphire matrix. Platinum precipitates were formed in sapphire via ion implantation...[Show more]
