40 keV Co+ ions were implanted in thin polyimide foils with doses in range of (0.25-1.50)x1017 ions/cm2 at ion current densities of 4, 8 and 12 microA/cm2. The cobalt-implanted polymer foils were annealed at the temperature of 300 oC for 2 hours in vacuum. Both the as-implanted and post-annealed samples were investigated by the ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) technique supplemented by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). TEM investigations showed that the implantation results in formation of cobalt granules in the irradiated polymer layer with the thickness of about 70 nm. The mean lateral size of cobalt granules varied within 5-20 nm depending on the dose. The annealing of the implanted samples induced coalescence of the cobalt granules and increase of their lateral sizes. No FMR signals were found for the as-prepared polymer foils implanted by cobalt ions at low current density of 4 microA/cm2. FMR signals were observed for the as-prepared samples implanted at higher ion current densities of 8 and 12 microA/cm2 as well as for all annealed samples. The values of the effective magnetisation were extracted from the FMR spectra measured at different sample orientations in the applied magnetic field. Dose dependencies of the FMR absorption intensity and effective magnetisation were obtained for the annealed films. The magnetic properties of the synthesised cobalt-polymer composite materials and their modification due to the annealing treatment are discussed.
