Swift heavy ion irradiation of cobalt nanoparticles

Sprouster, David; Giulian, Raquel; Schnohr, Claudia; Kluth, Patrick; Araujo, Leandro; Byrne, Aidan; Foran, Garry J; Ridgway, Mark C


It is well known that the electronic energy loss released by swift heavy ions can cause considerable atomic movement in various solids. Here, we present a study of the effects of swift heavy ion irradiation on Co nanoparticles embedded within a silica host matrix. The evolution of the Co nanoparticle crystal phase, structural properties, shape and size has been characterized using a combination of x-ray absorption spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. An FCC-to-HCP phase...[Show more]
