Diffusion Limited Cu and Au Nanocrystal Formation in Thin Film SiO 2

Johannessen, Bernt; Kluth, Patrick; Glover, Christopher; Foran, Garry J; Ridgway, Mark C


Elemental Cu and Au nanocrystals (NCs) were produced by high-energy ion-implantations into amorphous silica (SiO2) and subsequent thermal annealing. By a combination of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy (XTEM) we confirm both NC species to have the bulk face-centered cubic phase and estimate their average diameter. We concentrate on the investigation of the concentration and size-dependent coordination number (CN) of these matrix embedded NCs utilising...[Show more]
