Abstract
To fabricate efficient gas sensors with novel engineered nanomaterials, silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) were successfully green synthesized by Nd: YAG nanosecond pulsed laser ablation technique using a mixture of diluted silver nitrate solution and citrus limetta juice extract irradiated for different ablation durations at room temperature. Brownish-yellow colloidal Ag-NPs formation was confirmed by UV-Vis spectroscopy with the absorbance peak around 407-419 nm. HR-TEM results confirmed well mono-dispersed spherical shape morphology for Ag-NPs with particle size around 8 nm for near to 80 min of ablation time. Notably, the engineered nanostructured Ag-NPs were used freshly in room temperature fiber optic gas sensing. The sensor exhibited an outstanding linear response for ammonia gas (0-500 ppm). The sensitivity was about 128.7 Counts/kPa for ammonia gas at RT. The dynamic response of the sensor was recorded to be 15.5 s and 3.5 s. In summary, laser-ablated green synthesized Ag-NPs showed excellent efficiency in detecting ammonia gas at room temperature.
