Colloidal gold nanoparticles were produced by irradiating a gold disc with a femtosecond laser beam in pure deionized water. Variation of laser fluence between 38 and 330 J/cm2 was used to control the nanoparticle size distribution. The nanoparticles produced were spherically shaped with average diameter between 9 and 10 nm. The effect of ablation time on the nanoparticle production efficiency and size distribution was also studied.
