  • Crystalline and amorphous xenon nanoparticles were produced in aluminum by Xe+ ion implantation and were characterized with high-resolution electron microscopy combined with electron energy loss EEL spectroscopy. Unusual distributions of the aspect ratio and of the diameter of the crystalline particles were observed and explained, respectively, by minimization of the surface energy and of the strain energy due to the specific lattice mismatch between Al and Xe. Matrix oxidation was revealed as… CONTINUE READING
