Abstract: This work investigates pulsed laser ablation for Ga 2O 3 nanoparticles. Nanoparticles with diameters of 10 to 500 nm were deposited on silicon substrates in large quantities, by KrF excimer laser ablation of a GaN (99.99% purity) target in high purity nitrogen (99.9995%) background gas at room temperature, without a catalyst. The particle size and phase structure of the as-deposited nanoparticles are examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM), and selected-area electron diffraction (SAD). FE-SEM images show that the nanoparticles aggregate to form micron-size nanoclusters at chamber pressures of 1 and 5 Torr. On the other hand, nanoparticles aggregate with chain-like nanostructures, are synthesized at high chamber pressures (≥ 10 Torr). TEM images further reveal that chain-like nanostructures are formed by the aggregation of individual spherical and ellipsoidal nanoparticles. Photoluminescence measurement shows stable and broad blue emission at 445 nm.
