Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Silver nano-dots have been deposited by a special procedure on the surface of a YAG coated silicon wafer. Sizes of 40-100 nm and a self-organized distribution according to the pattern of the pattern of defects (dislocations, terraces, etc.) on the wafer's surface were revealed. The procedure is simple and can be applied for the controlled deposition of small silver clusters to be used both in medicine and in nano-electronic devices.
