Abstract

A 10-nm-thick gold film was evaporated onto a SiO2/Si(100) substrate and was implanted by Ar+ions at 40 keV and 1015at/cm2dose creating island like Au nanoparticles. An 80-nm-thick gold film was also deposited the onto same substrate and considered as reference.Fe2O3film was deposited onto the gold nanoparticles and the gold/oxide interface was modeled. The valence band and the structure were measured by means of photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), respectively. The catalytic activity was detected by CO oxidation, which was higher after the deposition of Fe2O3layer onto Au nanoparticles than that on a continuous Au film. This observation was correlated to the nanosize and the redistributed valence band density of states of gold in the Au/Fe2O3interface. © 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V.
