Structure and Morphology of Ion Irradiated Au Nanocrystals in SiO 2

Kluth, Patrick; Johannessen, Bernt; Kluth, Susan; Foran, Garry J; Cookson, D J; Ridgway, Mark C


We have investigated the effect of ion irradiation on the structure and morphology of Au nanocrystals (NCs) fabricated by ion beam synthesis in a thin SiO2 layer on a Si substrate. Extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy measurements show a significant drop in the average Au-Au coordination, as well as a loss of medium and long range order with increasing irradiation dose. Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) measurements reveal a concomitant reduction in average NC size....[Show more]
