Abstract:

Sequential ion implantation (copper and nickel) in silica and soda-lime glasses has been performed. The formation of copper-nickel alloy nanocluster in the glass host has been evidenced by synchrotron radiation-based techniques, namely X-ray diffraction and absorption spectroscopy. The nanocrystals' lattice parameter value was estimated, indicating the formation of Cu55Ni45 alloy particles. Optical absorption spectra are also discussed.
