Abstract
The material properties of nanometer-sized clusters are dependent on the cluster size. Changing the cluster dimensions induces structural phase transformations, metal-insulator transitions, non-linear optical properties and widening of the band gap of semiconductors. In this work, nanoclusters are created by ion implantation followed by thermal annealing. The ceramic oxides MgO and Al2O3 are used as embedding materials because of their stability and optical transparency. All clusters were created by means of ion implantation (typical dose 1016 ions cm-2, energy range 0.031.0 MeV) and subsequent thermal annealing (temperature 9001300K). Many experimental techniqu...
