By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on Nanomaterials have been published. According to news reporting out of Guangdong, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Femtosecond laser ablation in solution (FLAS) is a unique and simple technique addressing the drawbacks of the conventional methods giving access to preparation of an ultra-broad spectrum of nanomaterials (NMs), since the NMs can be produced from nearly any solid materials and variable precursors in different solutions. After the energy injection in ultra-short time, extreme conditions with high temperature, high pressure and high cooling rate are created, under which many interesting phenomena occur, including nanomaterial formation."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the South China University of Technology, "Characteristic advantages of this method are the applications in preparing a huge variety of NMs, the high purity of the products, and the in situ dispersion and functionalization of the as-prepared NMs in various solutions. This review is devoted to give a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of FLAS."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "A map of variable NMs prepared by FLAS and the promising applications are built up to pave the way for more future work in this field."
