Femtosecond Pulse Laser Near-Field Ablation of Ag Nanorods
AbstractAg nanorods (Ag NRs) with a mean aspect ratio of 3.9 were prepared through a wet-chemical method, and the absorption spectra for various aspect ratios were obtained. The morphology transformation of Ag NRs irradiated with a femtosecond pulse laser was investigated through transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The near-field ablation was dependent on the laser polarization and wavelength. Laser-induced high electric field intensity was observed at the ends, middle, and junctions of the Ag NRs under various ablation conditions. Through simulation, the evolution mechanism was analyzed in detail. The effect of laser polarization angle on plasmonic junction welding was also investigated. By controlling the electronic field distribution, several nanostructures were obtained: bone-shaped NRs, T-shaped NRs, dimers, trimers, curved NRs, and nanodots. This study suggests a potentially useful approach for the reshaping, cutting, and welding of nanostructures. View Full-Text
