Amorphous iron formation due to low energy heavy ion implantation in evaporated 57Fe thin films
- 43 Downloads
Thin films prepared by vacuum evaporation of 57Fe and subsequent low energy ion implantation were investigated by conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy and AFM measurements. A sextet with Mössbauer parameters of δ = 0.1 mm/s and B = 26 T appearing in the CEM spectra was identified as amorphous iron. Passivation and phosphonation of the thin films revealed the high affinity of amorphous iron in chemical reactions.
