What’s new in laser based nanofabrication for the fast uptake in industrial application

Taj Muhammad Khan, Morten Christian Meyer


Laser based efficient new nanofabrication methods with technical feasibility for the fast uptake in industrial application are of significant global demand. A recent simplest approach in this way is the standard pulsed laser deposition (PLD), used since 1960s after the development of high power lasers. Over all, PLD is a fit method towards the preparation of a variety of nanomaterials only for research purpose. Nevertheless, the method is relatively slow and could not adopted in industrial scale application. A recent new-fangled development in this direction is the atmospheric-PLD (APLD), where ablation of the target by a laser pulse occurs at atmospheric gas pressure and the ablated material is delivered to the substrate using a flowing medium such as gas or atmospheric plasma. With this method, a variety of nanomaterials such as plasmonic metal NP film could be produced for practical ap
