Local structural and chemical ordering of nanosized Pt(3±δ)Co probed by multiple-scattering x-ray absorption spectroscopy

Abstract

This work reports a detailed investigation of the local structure and chemical disorder of a Pt(3±δ)Co thin film and Pt(3±δ)Co nanoparticles. We have used a combination of techniques including x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), x-ray diffraction (XRD), and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The important effect of chemical ordering on pair and three-atom configurations has been studied using computer simulations based on a simple model accounting for substitutional disorder. It has been found that individual EXAFS signals related to the minority species (Co) are extremely sensitive to substitutional disorder so their intensities, especially those of the collinear three-atom configurations, can be used as a measure of the ordering level. The robust approach for nanomaterial characterization used in this work combining different techniques can, in principle, be applied for structural refinements of any binary nanocrystalline functional system.
