  • Abstract not provided.
  • An investigation was made of the reflectivity and wavelength modulated reflectivity of Ga S/sub x/ Se/sub 1-x/ mixed crystals at 5/sup 0/K for energies ranging from 3 to 6 eV. The main structures in the optical response function of the alloy spectra are found to exhibit three characteristic classes of shift versus composition. These results are discussed on the basis of a new, slightly modified, pseudopotential band structure calculation for Ga Se. The anisotropic and excitonic character of the 3.4 eV structure in GaSe is also discussed in light of the band structure calculation. 7 fig.
  • A cluster deposition method was used to produce a film of loosely aggregated particles of Fe-Fe3O4 core-shell nanoclusters with an 8 nm iron core size and 2 nm oxide shell thickness. The film of particles on a silicon substrate was irradiated with 5.5 MeV Si2+ ions to a fluence of 1016 cm-2 near room temperature, and computer simulations based on the SRIM (Stopping and Range of Ions in Matter) code show that the implanted Si species stops near the film-substrate interface. The ion irradiation creates a structural change in the film with corresponding chemical and magnetic changes. X-ray diffraction showsmore » that the core size and chemistry stay the same but the shell becomes FeO that grows to a thickness of 17 nm. Helium ion microscopy shows that the previously separate particles have densified into a nearly continuous film. Major loop magnetic hysteresis measurements show a decrease in saturation magnetization that we attribute to the presence of the antiferromagnetic (AFM) FeO shell. First-order reversal curve measurements on the irradiated film performed with a vibrating sample magnetometer show that the AFM shell prevents the particles from interacting magnetically, leading to low coercivity from the iron core and little bias field from the core interactions. These results, and others reported previously on different compositions (Fe3O4 or FeO+Fe3N nanoclusters), show that the ion irradiation behavior of nanocluster films such as these depends strongly on the initial nanostructure and chemistry.« less
  • Auger-electron production in collisions of slow Al/sup +/, Si/sup +/, P/sup +/, S/sup +/, Cl/sup +/, and Ar/sup +/ ions incident on Ar and CH/sub 4/ targets has been investigated. Total cross sections for projectile L-shell, Ar L-shell, and C K-shell Auger-electron production have been determined experimentally. For a number of cases, vacancy-production cross sections have been deduced by combining the present data with the results of previous x-ray measurements. The latter cross sections are found to be consistent with the predictions of the molecular-orbital model of atomic collisions.
