Some aspects of nanoparticle generation are presented and compared by laser-assisted chemical vapor deposition (LCVD) and laser ablation (LA) techniques. LCVD generates narrow size distribution while LA yields wide size distribution of the nanoparticles. LCVD is convenient for varying the mean size of the particles by changing the partial pressure of the precursor gas, while an attractive characteristic of LA is that it is capable of producing particles from practically any kind of target material.
