- Most methods controlling size and shape of metal nanoparticles are chemical methods, and little work has been done using only plasma methods. Size- and shape-controlled synthesis of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) is proposed based on adjusting the gas bubble formation produced between two silver electrodes. The application of a voltage waveform with three different pulse widths during a plasma process in water can generate different gas bubble formations. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images of Ag NPs synthesized using three different bubble formations reveal that spherical Ag NPs are synthesized when very tiny bubbles are generated between two electrodes or when only the grounded electrode is enveloped with large gas bubbles, but Ag nanoplates are synthesized when both electrodes are completely enveloped with large gas bubbles. © 2018 by the authors.
