(a) Porod plots vertically offset for clarity and (b) background-subtracted SAXS intensities (fitted region shown in gray with spectra offset for comparison) for the samples as a function of annealing temperature.
Normalized and volume-weighted NP size distributions deduced from SAXS analysis as a function of (a) annealing temperature (for with inset at ) and (b) Co concentration (for ).
TEM images for the samples annealed at different temperatures: (a) as-implanted, (b) , (c) , and (d) .
Arrhenius plot of the squared mean NP radius as a function of the inverse temperature ( is the Boltzmann constant and is the annealing temperature). The solid lines are linear fits to the experimental data.
XANES spectra at the -edge for (a) bulk standards, (b) all samples, and (c) all samples.
Fitted hcp, fcc, and oxide fractions as a function of annealing temperature for (a) all samples and (b) all samples.
Summary of the crystallographic phase (measured at room temperature) of Co NPs formed by IBS determined from the current study (open symbols) and Refs. 1, 2, 5, and 7 (solid symbols) as functions of annealing temperature and (a) NP size and (b) of implant Co concentration.
[(a), (c), and (e)] -weighted EXAFS spectra (offset for comparison) and corresponding phase corrected FT EXAFS spectra [(b), (d), and (f)] for bulk standards; all and all samples.
Structural parameters of the first NN shell showing (a) CN, (b) DW factor, (c) third cumulant , and (d) BL as a function of NP size. The solid line in (a) is the CN derived from Eq. (1). The insets in (b) and (c) show the same data plotted as inverse diameter. The inset in (d) shows the BL contraction relative to the bulk fcc Co standard as a function of inverse NP diameter with the solid line as a fit to Eq. (2)
