Figure 3

(a) Color map of the XRD intensity evolution for the PdCu 1 : 1 nanoparticle mixture on the SiO2/Si substrate isothermally annealed at 450°C in a forming gas atmosphere showing the formation of the ordered B2 phase (see also [7]). The heating process started at time 60 sec. (b) Color map of the XRD intensity evolution of the PdCu nanoparticle mixture on the SiO2/Si ramp annealed from 450°C to 750°C in a forming gas atmosphere showing the transformation of the B2 phase into two disordered fcc alloy phases. (c) -2 XRD scans after annealing at 450°C and 750°C.
