Using wires of defined diameters instead of a planar target for pulsed laser ablation in liquid results in significant increase of ablation efficiency and nanoparticle productivity up to a factor of 15. We identified several competitive phenomena based on thermal conductivity, reflectivity and cavitation bubble shape that affect the ablation efficiency when the geometry of the target is changed. On the basis of the obtained results, this work represents an intriguing starting point for further developments related to the up-scaling of pulsed laser ablation in liquid environments at the industrial level.

Abstract

Using wires of defined diameters instead of a planar target for pulsed laser ablation in liquid results in significant increase of ablation efficiency and nanoparticle productivity up to a factor of 15. We identified several competitive phenomena based on thermal conductivity, reflectivity and cavitation bubble shape that affect the ablation efficiency when the geometry of the target is changed. On the basis of the obtained results, this work represents an intriguing starting point for further developments related to the up-scaling of pulsed laser ablation in liquid environments at the industrial level.
