Plasma-mediated Nanosecond-Laser Generation of Si Nanoparticles in Water


Plasma-mediated nanosecond IR-laser ablation of Si in water was describe sublinear function mass loss by multi shot ablative and third-power function extinction coefficient of generated colloidal solutions of density laser intensity. The first addiction shows influence subcritical ablative plasma to ablative rate, also fast increase extinction coefficient of 100 nm size particles of silicon in colloidal solution implies plasma-mediated dissociation of the ablation products.

Keywords: silicon nanoparticles, nanosecond laser ablation, sub-critical ablative plasma, extinction coefficient, scaling relationships, melt expulsion
