Abstract

Metal nanoparticles have unique chemical, physical, electrical, and optical properties that make them attractive for a wide range of applications in sensing, anti-fouling surfaces, medicine, and conductive inks. Pulsed Laser Ablation in Liquid (PLAL) is a green method of nanoparticle colloid production, capable of producing ligand-free nanoparticles in solution without the need for hazardous, environmentally unfriendly chemicals. Control of the process parameters can give control over the resulting colloid properties such as particle size distribution. In this work, silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs) with average particle size from 2.04 to 19.3 nm and copper (Cu) NPs with average particle size from 40 to 85.9 nm were produced by PLAL) technique.
