Nanoparticles: Production, Characterization and Applications


The production of metallic nanoparticles using pulsed laser ablation in water is presented. The physical characterization of the produced nanoparticles is reported in terms of electronic microscopy, optical and mechanical properties, SPR, EDX, XPS and XRD spectroscopies. The applications of the prepared nanoparticles involve different scientific fields. In particular will be discussed their use to modify some properties of polymers, liquids and alloys. Special attention is devoted to the use of nanoparticles for polymeric laser welding, to the use as an image contrast medium in the biological environment and to the use of Au-NPs targeting for radiotherapy of cancer tissues.
