Pulsed laser deposition of nanocatalysts for dye degradation
Type: Research paper
Co3O4 nanoparticles (NPs) assembled coatings were synthesized using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) by taking advantage of the phase explosion process. The coatings were prepared at a substrate temperature of 150 °C by using three different laser fluences (3, 5, and 7 J/cm2) in order to tune the size of NPs. Structural property and surface morphology of NPs were investigated by Raman spectroscopy and electron microscopy respectively.
