Title: In situ growth of Co nanofibers in In{sub 2}O{sub 3}-SnO{sub 2} matrix during sputtering deposition

Abstract

Co-sputtering onto (001) cubic zirconia from a target of indium tin oxide (ITO) partially covered by cobalt (Co) was carried out at substrate temperatures of 470-770 K in order to investigate the growth of Co nanofibers. During film growth, Co forms fibers in the growth direction in the single-crystalline ITO matrix. The cross section of the Co fibers, the size of which depends on the substrate temperature, was a rectangle with an edge 1-5 nm in length. The edge length of the Co fiber increased with the increase of the substrate temperature. The present method is attractive for application to produce magnetic recording media.
