Abstract

The influence of experimental conditions (wavelength, liquid environment) on the properties of Ni-Ti nanoparticles generated by nanosecond laser ablation of NiTinol (Shape Memory Alloy) target and the elemental distribution of the irradiated surface were investigated. The studied laser wavelengths were 248 (KrF) and 1064 nm (Q-switched Nd:YAG). Nitinol targets were covered with thin liquid layer of distilled water and ethanol, respectively. The samples were irradiated with various numbers of pulses (500 in case of the investigation of the alloy surface and 20000 for the particle generation) and fluences (2 and 5 J/cm2). The morphology of laser treated NiTi surface and the size of the generated nanoparticles were studied as a function of both the laser fluence and the type of the applied liquids using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Element mappings were realized by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). Our results clearly show that when using ethanol both the laser treated surface and the generated particles had a relatively homogeneous elemental distribution. However, under distilled water the irradiated surface and the generated particles showed a separated presence of Ni and Ti elements. For the higher fluence, formation of core-shell structured particles were observed in water environment.
