Abstract

Sequential ion implantation of two metal species in silica glass may give rise to the formation of alloy metal nanoclusters. Composite materials with peculiar optical properties can be therefore fabricated, with application in integrated-optical devices. In the presented experiments, different couples of transition elements were sequentially implanted in a silica glass. The resulting systems, in some cases after annealing in either reducing or oxidizing atmosphere, were studied by several analytical techniques, such as transmission electron microscopy and X-ray absorption spectroscopy. The formation of different alloy nanoclusters was evidenced, together with the cluster crystalline structure and the chemical environment of the dopant species.
