Abstract
CdSe and ZnS core-shell nanoparticles made by LAM (Laser Ablation of Microparticles) show photoluminesence (PL) peaks in a region of wavelengths around 400 nm. Control over the size and PL peak position is obtained by irradiating the nanoparticles multiple times. In LAM, micropaticle powder passes through an aerosol generator and then into a laser ablation glass cell, where a laser pulse (high energy excimer laser) ablates the microparticle aerosol. Nanoparticles are formed after condensation. At this stage the nanoparticles can be covered with a second material or irradiated multiple times to change their size. The size distribution of these particles is successfully investigated with TEM (Transmission Electron Microscopy). PL blue shifts are seen as the mean size decreases.
