Abstract

In this article, we study the thermally activated chemical order transition in FeCo nanoalloys prepared by low energy clusters beam deposition (LECBD). Due to the low Z-contrast (ΔZ = 1) between Fe and Co atoms, a particular strategy based on extended X-ray absorption edge fine structure (EXAFS) experiments and simulations at both Fe and Co K-edges has been developed as well as accurate magnetic characterizations on as-prepared and annealed FeCo clusters embedded in a carbon matrix. We show that upon annealing crystallographic order and magnetic properties are improved, but we are not able to detect without ambiguity the B2 (CsCl-type) chemical order as expected in bulk-like phase, due to competition between stable iron carbide formation and cobalt–carbon demixing in bimetallic nanoparticles.
