28 August 2014 Generation of Cd1-xZnxS nanoparticles by laser ablation in liquids
Author Affiliations +
Approximately spherical nanoparticles of the II–VI semiconductor materials Cd1-xZnxS have been produced successfully by laser ablation of the bulk material in several liquids. The non-stabilized suspensions of particles are characterized by absorption spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The procedure is not strongly size-selective, radii of 7±3 nm were found for Cd1-xZnxS by transmission electron microscopy. Acetonitrile stabilizes the particles for several days up to weeks. Prolonged irradiation leads effectively to a reduction in particles size, in which particle agglomeration may play an important role. Ablation in degassed liquids does not have a significant effect on the absorption of the suspended particles.
