Abstract
Nanocomposites formed by metal nanoparticles embedded in an insulating matrix have some interesting electrical characteristics. Materials of this kind are of interest from a fundamental perspective as well as for applications. We investigated nanocomposites of Au/PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate), Pt/PMMA, Ti/alumina and Au/alumina systems. In all cases the nanocomposite was produced through metallic ion implantation in insulating substrate, where the implanted metal self-assembles into nanoparticles. Transmission electron microscopy of the implanted samples was used for direct visualization of the nanoparticles formed. The nanocomposites were characterized in situ by measuring the resistivity as the implantation proceeded. The surface resistivity measurements were compared with the predictions of a model based on percolation theory, in which electron transport through the composite is explained by conduction through a random resistor network formed by the metallic nanoparticles. Excellent agreement was found between the experimental results and the predictions of the theory. It was possible to conclude that the conductivity process is due only to percolation and that the contribution from tunneling conduction is negligible. Computer simulation using the TRIDYN computer code was used to estimate the depth profiles of the metallic ion implanted in the insulating substrate. This is a Monte Carlo simulation program based on the TRIM (Transport and Range of Ions in Matter) code that takes into account compositional changes in the substrate due to two factors: previously implanted dopant atoms, and sputtering of the substrate surface.
