Laser ablation in liquid of Germanium in externally applied electric fields
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Laser ablation in liquids has been proven to be an effective path to synthesize nanomaterials.1 Laser ablation in liquids provides unique advantages since materials are fabricated under nonequilibrium, high-pressure, high-temperature conditions. In addition, it allows for varying many parameters (e.g. laser fluence, liquid) to help control synthesis. Laser ablation in liquids with an externally applied electric field extends the traditional Laser ablation in liquids approach, and in the only published report on this topic, has been shown to control the morphology, size, chemical composition and structure of the samples.2 In this thesis, the effect of electric fields on Laser ablation in liquids of germanium targets is studied. The aim is to better understand the role of an externally applied electric field in the ablation process and on the ablation products.
