Strain Induced X-Ray Line Broadening and Morphological Investigation on Silver Nanoparticles
Utilizing ethylene glycol (EG) and diethylene glycol (DEG) as both solvent and reducing agent, nano-sized silver particles were successfully synthesized by polyol process. The shape and size of silver nanoparticles were controlled by changing the ratio of the concentration of the silver nitrate to the concentration of the capping polymer material polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). The crystallite size contribution to line broadening was analysed separately by the Scherrer formula. The Williamson-Hall (W-H) model includes uniform deformation (UD), uniform deformation stress (UDS) and uniform deformation energy (UDE) were fitted to estimate the strain induced line broadening in Bragg diffracted peak. The effect of PVP concentration and different reducing agents on the morphology were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron micrsocopy (TEM) micrographs.
