Localized Synthesis of Metal Nanoparticles Using Nanoscale Corona Discharge in Aqueous Solutions

Authors


Abstract

Highly localized and controlled metal nanoparticle synthesis using nanoscale corona discharge in aqueous solutions is illustrated. As a case study, gold nanoparticles are successfully deposited at the very tip of carbon nanopipettes to act as surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) probes.
