In this work, a bulk Ti/Ag alloy was used, for the first time, to produce Ag–TiO2 compound nanoparticles using picosecond laser ablation in deionised water. Spherical Ag–TiO2 compound nanoparticles with an average size of 31 nm were produced. They were characterised using UV-VIS spectrometry, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), High-Angle Annular Dark-Field-Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (HAADF-STEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy… CONTINUE READING
