Abstract :
In this paper, we have presented experimental results for the generation of aluminum nanoparticles applying ultrasound ablation technique. The formation of aluminum nanoparticles was confirmed by Powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), the Field emission electron microscopy (FESEM), the atomic force microscopy (AFM), and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). The most probable particle size of nanoparticles produced by this method is 44.7 and 105.7 nanometers for two different ultrasonic power of 20 W and 50 W respectively. The ultrasonic ablation method is a new and innovative method for the production of aluminum nanoparticles. In this method, the fast movement sanding by an ultrasonic apparatus converts aluminum foil to nanoparticles. The most important advantages of this method are green, fast, controllable and high purity of the produced nanoparticle.
