In this work, TiO2 thin films were prepared by RF sputtering onto thermally grown oxide layers on Si substrates. Cobalt and iron implantation into the TiO2 films was performed using a metal vapor vacuum arc ion source. The as-implanted and annealed films were characterized using Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, transmission electron microscopy, x-ray diffractometry, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, spectroscopic ellipsometry, and vibrating sample magnetometry. The dependence of the magnetic properties on the implantation and annealing conditions were studied in detail. Clear room temperature ferromagnetic properties (RT FM) were observed. The saturation magnetization (Ms) values per implanted Co or Fe atom exhibit an oscillatory dependence on the implantation dose. The maximum Ms in one Co implanted samples was determined to be 2.3 μB/Co, exceeding the bulk Co value. The possible origins of the RT FM properties are discussed.
