Abstract
We report on the element-specific magnetic characterization of Ni nanoparticles (NPs) embedded in Al2O3 (0 0 1) matrix prepared by ion-implantation (Ni:5 x 1016–2 x 1017 ions cm-2) technique. The X-ray diffraction studies reveal the coexistence of fcc Ni NPs of average size ~8–19 nm along with the other NiOx phases. X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) experiments demonstrate the competing nature of magnetic interactions between the Ni NPs and NiOx phases. The ferromagnetism at 10 K (for all the Ni implants) is related to the combined contribution of both phases, while the room temperature superparamagnetism at higher fluence is dominated by Ni NPs phase as confirmed by Ni L3,2 XMCD measurements
