Nanoparticles Embedding Into Metallic Materials by Laser Direct Irradiation

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Publication Date



We report a method to half-embed nanoparticles into metallic materials. Transparent and opaque nanoparticle (laser wavelength 1064 nm) were both successfully half-embedded (partial part of nanoparticles embedded into matrix while other parts still stay above the matrix) into metallic materials. Nanoparticles were coated on sample surface by dip coating before laser irradiation. After laser irradiation of different pulses and laser fluencies, nanoparticles were embedded into metal. The mechanism and process of embedding were investigated.
