Rapid deformation of thin gold layers in polymer matrices studied by x-ray reflectivity
Rapid deformation of thin gold layers in polymer matrices was studied using x-ray reflectivity. The structure of gold nanoparticles at the nanoscale was monitored, permitting examination of the interaction between the nanoparticles and the polymer matrix. The results showed that the equilibrium structures of the samples with the thinnest layers were very close to those of the nanoannealed samples. The fractional area covered with Au obtained from the TEM images was found in good agreement with the x-ray data.
