Production of nano-sized platinum-particle films using low energy electron beams

Hakoda, Teruyuki; Yamamoto, Shunya; Aritani, Hirofumi*; Yoshikawa, Masahito

Reduction of noble metal ions and subsequent production of noble metal particles in a solution has been performed as a radiation-induced precipitation (RIP) method using high energy ionizing radiation. Electron beams with energies below 300 keV have shorter penetration range and can irradiate at higher dose rates. Application of such low energy EBs to the RIP method has a possibility of producing film matters consisting of noble metal particles on the surface of the solution. In the present study, this possibility was examined using a few ten keV EBs for PtCl$$_{6}$$$$^{2-}$$ ion solutions. Black-colored film matters were produced on the surface of the sample solution after EB irradiation. Lower concentrations of ethanol such as 0.5v% accelerated the formation of Pt films on the sample solution. The films had network structure consisting of connected Pt particles with sizes of 2-5 nm.
