AB  - The influence of deposition and annealing parameters on optical, structural and photocatalytic properties of N-doped titanium-dioxide (TiO2) thin films have been studied. Anatase and anatase-rutile crystalline phase mixture TiO2 thin films were obtained depending on the reactive direct current (DC) sputtering and annealing conditions. Deposition in the nitrogen atmosphere produced N-doped TiO2 thin films with energy gap values shifted towards visible region in comparison with thin TiO2 films deposited without nitrogen in the atmosphere. The role of substitutional and interstitial nitrogen atoms incorporated in obtained crystalline structures during the deposition was shown important and was reflected in the efficiency of photocatalysis. It was found that thin TiO2 films with more substitutional incorporated nitrogen exhibits better photocatalytic properties. These results could be of importance towards achieving controlled synthesis of N-doped TiO2 thin films with desired structural and optical properties, especially with improved photo-activity in the visible part of the solar spectrum.

AB  - In recent years polyoxometalates (POMs) have attracted significant research interest due to versatile properties. These properties are determined by the size, structure and elemental composition of POMs and hence play an important role in their application. In the present study, the ion beam irradiation (10 keV C+ ions, 5 × 1014–2.5 × 1015 ions/cm2) has been utilized for modification of physicochemical properties of 120 nm-thick layer of 12-tungstophosphoric acid (WPA). Scanning electron microscopy analysis of irradiated films showed change of morphology i.e. an increase of WPA grain size with irradiation and coalescence of grains at the highest fluence. This was accompanied by structural changes. Attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared analysis revealed that vibration bands of Keggin anion became less pronounced as fluence increased, while Raman spectra appeared as strongly modified. The effect of irradiation with 1.25 × 1015 ions/cm2 on the structure of WPA was similar to the effect of thermal treatment at 600 °C. Irradiation of WPA led to decrease of the band gap (from 4.07 to 3.92 eV), which was correlated to transformation Keggin anions into a network of WO6 octahedra and PO4 tetrahedra. This is in line with increased number of W=Od bonds observed by UV–Visible diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. Beside transformation to bronzes a reduction of WPA was observed by X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (shift to lower binding energy) and Raman methods, whereas the Raman spectra of irradiated samples were similar to heteropoly blue. The electrochemical properties of irradiated WPA were also assessed. Cyclic voltammetry measurements showed that at up to 1.25 × 1015 ions/cm2 lithiation capacity of WPA increases and activity for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) improves. The highest fluence caused interconnection of WO6 octahedra, closing of lithiation pathways and decrease in the number of active sites for HER. Our results provide a novel insight into the effects of ion beam irradiation on WPA and demonstrate high potential for tuning of physicochemical properties of POMs that are relevant in wide range of applications. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - Ultrafast laser processing with the formation of periodic surface nanostructures on the 15×(Ti/Zr)/Si multilayers is studied in order to the improve cell response. A novel nanocomposite structure in the form of 15x(Ti/Zr)/Si multilayer thin films, with satisfying mechanical properties and moderate biocompatibility, was deposited by ion sputtering on an Si substrate. The multilayer 15×(Ti/Zr)/Si thin films were modified by femtosecond laser pulses in air to induce the following modifications: (i) mixing of components inside of the multilayer structures, (ii) the formation of an ultrathin oxide layer at the surfaces, and (iii) surface nano-texturing with the creation of laser-induced periodic surface structure (LIPSS). The focus of this study was an examination of the novel Ti/Zr multilayer thin films in order to create a surface texture with suitable composition and structure for cell integration. Using the SEM and confocal microscopies of the laser-modified Ti/Zr surfaces with seeded cell culture (NIH 3T3 fibroblasts), it was found that cell adhesion and growth depend on the surface composition and morphological patterns. These results indicated a good proliferation of cells after two and four days with some tendency of the cell orientation along the LIPSSs. © 2020 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

AB  - In the present study we investigated the interaction between 12-tungstophosphoric acid (WPA) and graphene oxide (GO) in their nanocomposite by utilizing the loading of WPA as an intrinsic parameter for interaction tuning. The Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, temperature-programmed desorption, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, zeta-potential measurements, thermogravimetric analysis, X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy methods revealed that ∼5–13 wt% of WPA represents critical loading that separates two distinct contributions to GO-WPA interaction. This was explained by the self-limiting nature of GO-WPA interaction, initially controlled by high dispersion of WPA on GO (up to 13 wt%), that is eventually overpowered by WPA-WPA interaction as loading increases. As a result, the WPA agglomerates are being formed because of which the hybrid character of the nanocomposite diminishes, i.e., the properties of independent components start to be manifested to greater extent. The obtained results provide an important framework for considering possible outcomes in other 2D-0D systems, whose interaction is relevant both from fundamental and applicative point of view. Thus, the GO/WPA nanocomposite illustrates how the interactions between the components can be used for tuning the properties of nanocomposite as a whole. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - The formation of an ordered surface texture with micro and nanometer features on Ti/Zr multilayers is studied for better understanding and improvement of cell integration. Nanocomposite in form 30×(Ti/Zr)/Si thin films was deposited by ion sputtering on Si substrate for biocompatibility investigation. Surface texturing by femtosecond laser processing made it possible to form the laser-induced periodic surface structure (LIPSS) in each laser-written line. At fluence slightly above the ablation threshold, beside the formation of low spatial frequency-LIPSS (LSFL) oriented perpendicular to the direction of the laser polarization, the laser-induced surface oxidation was achieved on the irradiated area. Intermixing between the Ti and Zr layers with the formation of alloy in the sub-surface region was attained during the laser processing. The surface of the Ti/Zr multilayer system with changed composition and topography was used to observe the effect of topography on the survival, adhesion and proliferation of the murine mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Confocal and SEM microscopy images showed that cell adhesion and their growth improve on these modified surfaces, with tendency of the cell orientation along of LIPSS in laser-written lines. © 2019 by the authors.

AB  - The oxidation behaviour and morphological modification of CrN/(Cr,V)N coatings on Si wafers were studied after UV nanosecond laser (wavelength 248 nm, pulse duration 25 ns) processing in ambient air. The evolution of the surface composition and microstructure with the number of accumulated/subsequent pulses was systematically analysed depending on the initial content of vanadium in the as-deposited coatings. Irradiation of CrN/(Cr,V)N coatings with different content of vanadium was carried out at a fluence of 0.17 J cm−2with different number of pulses. The concentration of metallic components was fairly homogeneous distributed throughout the sample. However, on surface and in sub-surface regions the contents of Cr and V are diminished due to laser-induced oxidation. The composition and thickness of forming oxides mixture, Cr2O3and V2O5, are depending on the number of applied laser pulses and the initial vanadium content. The asymmetric progress of surface morphology is characterized by the formation of grainy structures at peripheries and the appearance of cracks and irregular closed shapes in the centre of the irradiation area.

AB  - The possibility of interlayer mixing in a Ti/Ta multilayer system, induced by laser irradiation, was the main purpose of these experiments. Ti/Ta multilayer system, consisting of ten alternating Ti and Ta thin films and covered by slightly thicker Ti layer, was deposited on Si (100) wafers to a total thickness of 205 nm. Laser irradiation was performed in air by picoseconds Nd:YAG laser pulses in defocused regime with fluences of 0.057 and 0.11 J cm−2. Laser beam was scanned over the 5 × 5 mm surface area with different steps along y-axes. Structural and compositional characterisation was done by auger electron spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. Laser processing at lower fluence caused only oxidation of the top Ti layer, despite of the number of applied laser pulses. Interlayer mixing was not observed. Application of laser pulses at fluence of 0.11 J cm−2caused partial and/or complete ablation of deposited layers. In partially ablated regions considerable mixing between Ti and Ta films was registered.

AB  - Formation of periodic nanostructures on the Ti/5x(Al/Ti)/Si multilayers induced by picosecond laser pulses is studied in order to better understand the formation of a laser-induced periodic surface structure (LIPSS). At fluence slightly below the ablation threshold, the formation of low spatial frequency-LIPSS (LSFL) oriented perpendicular to the direction of the laser polarization is observed on the irradiated area. Prolonged irradiation while scanning results in the formation of a high spatial frequency-LIPSS (HSFL), on top of the LSFLs, creating a co-existence parallel periodic structure. HSFL was oriented parallel to the incident laser polarization. Intermixing between the Al and Ti layers with the formation of Al-Ti intermetallic compounds was achieved during the irradiation. The intermetallic region was formed mostly within the heat affected zone of the sample. Surface segregation of aluminium with partial ablation of the top layer of titanium was followed by the formation of an ultra-thin Al2O3 film on the surface of the multi-layered structure.

AB  - In the present study we have evaluated the contribution of particular oxygen functional groups in the charge storage properties of graphene oxide (GO). This was achieved by a gradual thermal reduction of GO in an inert atmosphere (up to 800 degrees C) and thorough examination of functional groups which remained after each de-functionalization step. After identification of functional groups, the character of additional cyclovoltammetric peak, less pronounced than the main redox quinone/hydroquinone pair, and overall charge storage properties of GO were discussed from the perspective of different thermal stability of its surface groups. The results indicated three-stage deoxidation process of GO, each comprising of specific surface chemistry, structural changes and electrochemical behavior. The low capacitance, similar to 50 F g(-1), at T LT = 300 degrees C was attributed to the presence of epoxy and carboxyl groups. The highest capacitance (120-130 F g(-1)) was observed in the case of GO reduced at 400 and 500 degrees C, which we attributed to positive effects of phenol and carbonyl/quinone groups, while at high temperatures (T GT = 600 degrees C, similar to 30 F g(-1)) the extensive desorption of functional groups and structural changes were emphasized as the main reasons for additional decrease of capacitance. Our results highlight the cases where the duality of interpretation of surface functional groups is likely to happen and indicate that not all functional groups play a positive role in charge storage behavior of graphene oxide.

AB  - Multilayers consisting of five (Al/Ti) bilayers were deposited on (100) silicon wafers. On top was deposited the Ti layer, aimed at preventing Al from diffusing to the surface upon laser treatment. The total thickness of the thin-film structure was 200 nm. Laser irradiations with Nd:YAG picoseconds laser pulses in the defocused regime were performed in air. Laser beam energy was 4 mJ and laser spot diameter on the sample surface was 3 mm (fluence 0.057 J cm(-2)). The samples were treated with different numbers of laser pulses. Structural characterizations were performed by different analytical methods and nano-hardness was also measured. Laser processing induced layer intermixing, formation of titanium aluminides, oxidation of the surface titanium layer and enhanced surface roughness. Aluminum appears at the sample surface only for the highest density of laser irradiation. Laser processing induces increment of nano-hardness by approximately 20% and decrease of residual Youngs modulus for a few percentages from the starting value of the untreated samples. These results can be interesting toward achieving structures with a selective extent of Al-Ti reactivity in this multilayered system, within the development of biocompatible materials.

AB  - Visible-light active mesoporous N,S-doped and co-doped anatase TiO2 powders were synthesized by non-hydrolytic sol-gel route, starting from TiCl4 and Ti((OPr)-Pr-i)(4) dissolved in cyclohexane or dimethyl sulfoxide, later used as a S-doping agent. After drying in an inert atmosphere, the gels were annealed at 500 degrees C for 3 h, in air or ammonia flow, later used for N-doping. The undoped titania powder, obtained by annealing in air of the cyclohexane-based gel, was also annealed in ammonia to deduce which method is more efficient for N-doping: gel or powder annealing. The post-annealing in air after annealing in ammonia was optimized to attain the best photocatalytic activity for dye degradation under simulated visible light. The size of anatase nanocrystals decreased by doping and the specific surface area of the powders increased. The XPS analysis confirmed a successful substitution of Ti4+ by S(4+) and/or S(6+), which caused a very small band-gap narrowing. The gel annealing in ammonia was much more efficient for interstitial nitrogen incorporation in TiO2 lattice than the powder annealing. The annealing in ammonia of the gel synthesized with dimethyl sulfoxide provided the highest visible-light activity owing to high specific surface area, appropriate mesoporosity and high photoabsorption due to efficient N,S co-doping.

abstract = "Visible-light active mesoporous N,S-doped and co-doped anatase TiO2 powders were synthesized by non-hydrolytic sol-gel route, starting from TiCl4 and Ti((OPr)-Pr-i)(4) dissolved in cyclohexane or dimethyl sulfoxide, later used as a S-doping agent. After drying in an inert atmosphere, the gels were annealed at 500 degrees C for 3 h, in air or ammonia flow, later used for N-doping. The undoped titania powder, obtained by annealing in air of the cyclohexane-based gel, was also annealed in ammonia to deduce which method is more efficient for N-doping: gel or powder annealing. The post-annealing in air after annealing in ammonia was optimized to attain the best photocatalytic activity for dye degradation under simulated visible light. The size of anatase nanocrystals decreased by doping and the specific surface area of the powders increased. The XPS analysis confirmed a successful substitution of Ti4+ by S(4+) and/or S(6+), which caused a very small band-gap narrowing. The gel annealing in ammonia was much more efficient for interstitial nitrogen incorporation in TiO2 lattice than the powder annealing. The annealing in ammonia of the gel synthesized with dimethyl sulfoxide provided the highest visible-light activity owing to high specific surface area, appropriate mesoporosity and high photoabsorption due to efficient N,S co-doping.

AB  - Bimetallic NiAu and complex NiO:Au nanoparticles were formed by laser ablation of Ni target immersed in the colloidal gold solution. Effect of laser parameters (pulse duration, fluences and ablation times) on size and composition of nanoparticles was investigated by ablating the target with two Nd:YAG lasers at 1064 nm, operating with different pulse durations, 150 ps and 20 ns. Stronger ablation of the Ni target and subsequient synthesis of nanoparticles is achieved with picosecond pulses, compared to the nanoparticles production with nanosecond pulses, because the former ablation induces activation of different reactions between species in the colloidal solution. Shape, size and composition of the synthesized nanopraticles were found to correlate with the concentration of Ni species in the colloidal solution. Higher Ni concentration leads to formation of larger NiAu nanoparticles in form of solid solution. Smaller nanoparticles with lower Ni concentration in the colloidal solution were achieved by their synthesis during nanosecond pulses, when the obtained distribution of composition corresponds to the NiO matrix with incorporated golden nanoparticles. The results also demonstrate that the formation of bimetallic NiAu and complex NiO:Au nanoparticles were possible by means of laser ablation in liquids. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

AB  - Multilayer structures, consisting of 15 alternate Ti and Al thin films, and covered with thicker Ti layer, were deposited on a Si substrate to a total thickness of 900 nm. Laser treatment was performed in air by defocused Nd:YAG laser pulses (150 ps) with energies of 7 and 10 mJ covering an area of 3 mm in diameter (fluences were 0.1 and 0.14 J cm(-2) respectively). Laser beam was scanned over the 5 x 5 mm surface area. Characterizations were done by Auger electron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Nano-hardness measurements were performed by Vickers method with applied load of 5 mN. Obtained results show that irradiation with picosecond laser pulses leads to the formation of Ti2O3 in the top Ti layer. This process is more pronounced for higher energy and/or higher number of applied laser pulses. On the surface of all samples very thin amorphous TiO2 layer was formed. Laser irradiation induces surface melting and transformation of relatively flat surface into mosaic shaped one for samples treated with higher energy and higher number of applied laser pulses. Irradiation at smaller energy did not induce any noticeably mixing between Al and Ti beneath the covered Ti layer. Some mixing of Al and Ti appeared in the sample irradiated with higher energy of laser pulses. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

AB  - A platinum nanocatalyst on Sb doped tin oxide support (Sb-SnO2) was synthesized and characterized as a catalyst for oxygen reduction reaction in 0.1 mol dm(-3) NaOH solution at 25 degrees C. Sb (5%) doped tin oxide support was synthesized by a modified hydrazine reduction procedure. The platinum nanocatalyst (20% Pt) on Sb-SnO2 support was synthesized by a borohydride reduction method. The synthesized support and catalyst were characterized by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray diffraction technique (XRD). X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was applied to characterize the chemical status of elements before and after Pt-treatment. XPS spectra of Sn 3d, Pt 4f, Sb 3d and O 1s revealed that the Pt-deposition on Sb-SnO2 support induced the reduction of the Sn(4+) oxidation state to Sn(2+) and Sn(0) states, while Pt remained in the metallic state and Sb was in the (3+) oxidation state. Homogenous Pt nanoparticle distribution over the support, without pronounced particle agglomeration, was confirmed by HRTEM technique. The average Pt particle size was 2.9 nm. The electrochemically active Pt surface area of the catalyst was determined by the integration of the cyclic voltammetry curve in the potential region of underpotential deposition of hydrogen, after double layer charge correction, taking into account the reference value of 210 mu C cm(-2) for full monolayer coverage. This calculation gave the value of 51 m(2) g(-1). The kinetics of the oxygen reduction reaction with Pt/[Sb-SnO2 catalyst was studied by cyclic voltammetry and linear sweep voltammetry using a rotating gold disc electrode. Two different Tafel slopes were observed: one close to 60 mV dec(-1) in the low current density region, and another at similar to 120 mV dec(-1) in the higher current densities region, as was already referred in previous reports for the oxygen reduction reaction with polycrystalline Pt, as well as with different Pt based nanocatalysts. The specific activities for oxygen reduction, expressed in terms of kinetic current densities per electrochemically Pt active surface area, as well as per mass of Pt loaded, at the constant potential of practical interest (0.85 V and 0.90 V vs. RHE), were compared to a carbon supported (Vulcan XC-72) catalyst. The Pt/[Sb-SnO2 catalyst exhibited similar catalytic activity for oxygen reduction reaction like carbon supported one. The advantages of the carbon free support application in terms of the durability and stability of the catalysts were proved by accelerated stability tests.

AB  - Ruthenium oxide/titanium oxide, with a Ru:Ti atomic ratio of 7:3 was synthesized by modified sol-gel procedure and used as a support for platinum nanocatalyst for oxygen reduction reaction. The synthesized materials were characterized in terms of morphology, particle size distribution, chemical and phase composition by X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), high angle annular dark filed scanning transmission electron microscopy (HAADF, STEM) and electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS). XPS spectra revealed that Ru atoms were in mainly in Ru(4+) oxidation state, the Ti atoms in Ti(4+) oxidation state, whereas the Pt-atoms were in metallic state. TEM analysis proved that platinum nanoparticles nucleated at both oxide species and homogeneous distribution was observed. The average platinum nanoparticle size was 3.05 nm. Electrochemically active surface area of platinum was 32 m(2) g(-1). Kinetics of the oxygen reduction was studied at rotating disc electrode in 0.5 mol dm(-3) HClO4 solution, at 25 degrees C. The catalytic activities expressed in terms of specific activity (per electrochemically active surface area of platinum) and mass activity (per mass of platinum) were determined and compared to Pt catalyst on carbon support. The high catalytic activity was proven by electrochemical characterization. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

AB  - The surface oxidation of Ni/Ti bilayer, deposited on silicon substrate, affected by picosecond Nd: YAG laser radiation has been investigated. Fluence close to the target ablation threshold and multi-pulse laser irradiation regime were applied. Changes in the chemical composition of the formed surface oxide layer were studied by Elastic Recoil Detection Analysis (ERDA) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Morphological features analysis, at the oxide surface layer, was monitored, too. Laser modification as-deposited (Ni/Ti)/Si sample with 10 pulses induces a progressed interaction between Ni and Ti layers with the initial surface oxidation and formation of NiTi alloy phase. Progressed intermixing of components was achieved for the irradiation with 50 and more pulses, when all components were quite uniformly distributed to a depth of about 80 nm. An oxide layer was formed at the surface, with the specific combination of the oxide phases depending on the number of accumulated pulses.

abstract = "The surface oxidation of Ni/Ti bilayer, deposited on silicon substrate, affected by picosecond Nd: YAG laser radiation has been investigated. Fluence close to the target ablation threshold and multi-pulse laser irradiation regime were applied. Changes in the chemical composition of the formed surface oxide layer were studied by Elastic Recoil Detection Analysis (ERDA) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Morphological features analysis, at the oxide surface layer, was monitored, too. Laser modification as-deposited (Ni/Ti)/Si sample with 10 pulses induces a progressed interaction between Ni and Ti layers with the initial surface oxidation and formation of NiTi alloy phase. Progressed intermixing of components was achieved for the irradiation with 50 and more pulses, when all components were quite uniformly distributed to a depth of about 80 nm. An oxide layer was formed at the surface, with the specific combination of the oxide phases depending on the number of accumulated pulses.

AB  - The conditions of ultra-thin oxide films synthesized as the Al/Fe multilayer structures after the surface treatment with femtosecond laser radiation were studied. Thin films composed of three (Al/Fe) bilayers were deposited by DC ion sputtering on (100) Si wafers to the total thickness of 410 nm. Laser irradiations were performed by 40-fs pulses of a Ti:Sapphire laser operating at 800 nm, at fluences slightly higher than the ablation threshold. The samples were characterized by Auger electron spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. Progressed intermixing of components was achieved for the irradiation with fluence of 0.43 J cm(-2), when intermetallic phase was formed and all components were almost uniformly distributed through the entire multilayer structure. Exception is the subsurface region, to the thickness of 20 nm, where the distribution of constructive components and their oxide is changing with the distance from the surface, and this distribution depends on the applied laser fluences. An ultra-thin oxide layer was formed at the surface, with the specific combination of the oxide phases, Al2O3 and Fe2O3, depending on the applied fluences. Laser-induced modification was accompanied with the ablation of the material and the creation of parallel periodic structures. These effects of laser-induced morphological features are increased with increasing laser fluences, caused by the pronounced mobility of the materials. The special morphology of the laser-assisted synthesis of mixture of Al2O3 and Fe2O3 in the form of an ultra-thin oxide layer can improve their characteristics for functional applications, as catalysts and sensors.

AB  - The epitaxial growth of functional oxides on silicon substrates requires atomically defined surfaces, which are most effectively prepared using Sr-induced deoxidation. The manipulation of metallic Sr is nevertheless very delicate and requires alternative buffer materials. In the present study the applicability of the chemically much more stable SrO in the process of native-oxide removal and silicon-surface stabilization was investigated using the pulsed-laser deposition technique (PLD), while the as-derived surfaces were analyzed in situ using reflection high-energy electron diffraction and ex situ using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray reflectivity, and atomic force microscopy. After the deposition of the SrO over Si/SiO2, in a vacuum, different annealing conditions, with the temperature ranging up to 850 degrees C, were applied. Because the deposition took place in a vacuum, a multilayer composed of SrO, Sr-silicate, modified Si, and Si as a substrate was initially formed. During the subsequent annealing the topmost layer epitaxially orders in the form of islands, while a further increase in the annealing temperature induced rapid desorption and surface deoxidation, leading to a 2 x 1 Sr-reconstructed silicon surface. However, the process is accompanied by distinctive surface roughening, and therefore the experimental conditions must be carefully optimized to minimize the effect. The results of the study revealed, for the first time, an effective pathway for the preparation of a SrO-induced buffer layer on a silicon substrate using PLD, which can be subsequently utilized for the epitaxial growth of functional oxides.

AB  - In our paper we study effect of Mn for Fe substitution on magnetic properties of NdFex-1MnxO3 compounds for x = 0 and 0.1, which have been grown by the OFZ technique. The Neel temperature decreases from T-N1 = 691 K to T-N1 = 621 K, and the anomaly in AC susceptibility, related to spin reorientation, vanishes with Mn substitution. Low temperature heat capacity measurement for sample with x = 0.1 revealed that substitution of Mn for Fe shifts a Schottky-type anomaly at T-sh to higher temperatures. Another anomaly is generated by doping at T-max = 11 K. The anomaly is smeared out by magnetic field, confirming its magnetic origin.

AB  - Laser-induced alloying effects on the composition and structure of different Ni/Ti multilayer structures were studied. Thin films composed of one, five, and ten (Ni/Ti) bilayers were deposited by DC ion sputtering on (1 0 0) Si wafers. Laser irradiations were performed by 150 ps pulses of a Nd:YAG laser operating at 1064 nm. The samples were characterized by Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS), Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). At a laser fluence of 0.9 J cm(-2), interaction between Ni and Ti layers was initiated, and NiTi alloy formed in 5- and 10-bilayered samples. Progressed alloying was achieved at a laser fluence of 1.2 J cm(-2). The alloy was formed mostly within the heat affected zone (HAZ) of the sample. Surface segregation of titanium was followed by formation of a 25 nm thin TiO2 film on the surface of the multilayered structures. In addition, parallel periodic surface structures on the surfaces of the 5- and 10-bilayered samples were clearly recorded. Their period in the case of the 5-bilayered system (0.77 mu m) agrees very well with the predictions of the common theory, whereas, in the case of the 10-bilayered system, two periods of such structures are observed (1.43 mu m and 0.4 mu m), and none of them coincides with the prediction.

AB  - Multilayered 5x(Al/Ti) structures, deposited on a Si substrate to a total thickness of 130 nm, were treated by unfocused Nd:YAG laser pulses (150 ps) with energies of 85 and 65 mJ. Irradiations were performed in air with 10, 50 and 100 successive laser pulses. Characterizations were done by using Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS), elastic recoil detection analysis (ERDA), x-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results obtained show that laser irradiation, at either energy, induced almost full intermixing of deposited layers and formation of intermetallic compounds, but this was more pronounced for the applied laser pulses with a higher energy. The intermixed layer-silicon interface remains intact for all numbers of applied laser pulses and for both energies. The formation of an oxide layer on the sample surfaces was also observed, the thickness of which is greater for the higher laser beam energy.

AB  - Structural and compositional modifications of multilayered Al/Ti nano-structures induced by nanosecond laser pulses were investigated. Five and ten (Al/Ti) bilayers, with total thicknesses of 130 and 260 nm, respectively, were deposited by dc ion sputtering onto (100) Si wafers. The structures were irradiated in air with nanosecond Nd:YAG unfocused laser pulses. Characterizations of the samples were performed by x-ray diffraction analysis, Auger electron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. It was found that laser treatment of both structures induced complete intermixing of all deposited metallic films, their mixing with silicon substrate and formation of Al-Ti intermetallic and silicide compounds. This effect was achieved even for one applied laser pulse. Comparing these results with that for picosecond laser treatment of similar multilayered structures, it was concluded that materials involved within the heat diffusion length participated in the formation of new phases.

AB  - The effects of high dose Ar ion irradiation on immiscible AlN/TiN multilayered structures were studied. The structures with 30 alternate layers of a total thickness of similar to 260 nm were deposited by reactive sputtering on (100) Si wafers. Individual layer thickness was similar to 8 nm AlN and similar to 9.3 nm TiN. Irradiation was done with 180 keV Ar+ ions to 1x10(16)-8x10(16) ions/cm(2), with the projected range around mid-depth of the structures. It was found that the highest applied dose induced a considerable intermixing, where the growing TiN grains consume the adjacent AlN layers, transforming partly to (TiAl)N phase. Intermixing occurs due to a high contribution of collision cascades, which was not compensated in demixing by chemical driving forces. However, a multilayered structure with relatively flat surface and interfaces is still preserved, with measured nano-hardness value above the level for the as-deposited sample. The results are compared to other systems and discussed in the light of the existing ion beam mixing models. They can be interesting towards better understanding of the processes involved and to development of radiation tolerant coatings. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

AB  - The effects of Ar ion irradiation on interfacial reactions induced in Ni/Ti multilayers were investigated. Structures consisting of 10 alternate Ni (similar to 26 nm) and Ti (similar to 20 nm) layers of a total thickness similar to 230 nm were deposited by ion sputtering on Si (1 0 0) wafers. Argon irradiations were done at 180 keV, to the doses of 1-6 x 10(16) ions/cm(2), the samples being held at room temperature. The projected implanted ion range is 86 +/- 36 nm, maximum energy loss is closer to the surface, and maximum displacements per atom (dpa) from 47 to 284 for Ni and 26 to 156 for Ti. Characterizations of samples were performed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS). It is shown that ion irradiation induced a progressed intermixing in the mostly affected zone already for the lowest dose, the thickness of the mix increasing linearly with the irradiation dose. The mixed phase is fully amorphous, starting with a higher concentration of Ni (which is the diffusing species) from the initial stages, and saturating at Ni: Ti similar to 66:34. A thick amorphous layer (similar to 127 nm) formed towards the surface region of the structure for the irradiation dose of 4 x 10(16) ions/cm(2) remains stable with increasing the dose to 6 x 10(16) ions/cm(2), which introduces up to 6-7 at.% of Ar within the mix. The results are discussed in light of the existing models. They can be interesting for introducing a selective and controlled solid-state reaction and towards further studies of ion irradiation stability of amorphous Ni-Ti phase. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V.

AB  - Interaction of a Nd:YAG laser, operating at 1064 nm wavelength and pulse duration of 150 ps, with Ni/Ti multilayer thin films was studied. Nanocomposite structure of five (Ni/Ti) bilayers deposited by DC ion sputtering on Si(100) wafers to a total thickness of ca. 180 nm was treated with a laser pulse energy of about 55 mJ without focusing (fluence 1 J cm(-2)), Multi-pulse laser irradiation was done at an incidence angle of 22 degrees in air. The composition and surface morphology were monitored by Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and by atomic force microscopy (AFM). The main part of the absorbed laser energy was rapidly transformed into heat, producing intensive modifications of composition and morphology on the target surface. Besides surface oxidation, the results show an increase in surface roughness, formation of a regularly rippled surface topography and microcracking. Depth profile AES analysis revealed that laser annealing induced intermixing between the components of individual Ni and Ti layers with indications of possible formation of NiTi intermetallic compounds. An interesting finding is the surface segregation of Ti, although the top layer was Ni, prior to laser irradiation. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
