Abstract: The growth and structure of Pt nanocrystals (NCs) formed by ion implantation in a-SiO2 has been investigated as a function of the annealing conditions. Transmission electron microscopy and small-angle x-ray scattering measurements demonstrate that the annealing ambient has a significant influence on NC size. Samples annealed in either Ar, O-2, or forming gas (95% N-2: 5% H-2) at temperatures ranging from 500 degrees C-1300 degrees C form spherical NCs with mean diameters ranging from 1-14 nm. For a given temperature, annealing in Ar yields the smallest NCs. O-2 and forming gas ambients produce NCs of comparable size though the latter induces H chemisorption at 1100 degrees C and above, as verified with x-ray absorption spectroscopy. This H intake is accompanied by a bond-length expansion and increased structural disorder in NCs of diameter >3 nm. © 2009, American Institute of Physics
