We have investigated the process of metal nanoparticle (NP) synthesis in SiO2 by implanting Ag+ ions with an energy of 30 keV depending on the dose ((2–8)·1016 cm−2) and the ionic current density (4–15 µA/cm2). Analysis of the composite materials formed was performed with the use of optical spectroscopy and atomic-force microscopy (AFM). The NPs synthesized in the glass demonstrate a characteristic absorption line associated with the surface plasma resonance effect. A correlation of the… 
Specificity of silver nanoparticle synthesis in quartz glass upon low-energy ion implantation
Silica-based composite materials with silver nanoparticles (NPs) were studied. Synthesis of the NPs was carried out using a low-energy (30 keV) implantation of Ag+ ions to high fluences. After the
Nanostructures in various Au ion-implanted ZnO facets modified using energetic O ions.
Rutherford backscattering spectrometry in the channelling mode (RBS-C) and Raman spectroscopy show that O irradiation with high electronic energy transfer distinctly modifies the implanted Au layer in various ZnO facets; it introduces additional displacement and disorder in the O sublattice mainly in the a-plane while not creating an additional strain in this facet.
