Can anyone explain for me the difference between the effect of continuous laser and pulsed laser on the nanoparticles?

You need to narrow your question down, considerably.  What nanoparticles, of which dimensions?  What type of lasers, specifically what output spectrum and what hertz?  What is the overall experiment/production process you are attempting?

A quick google search brings up this article, which may be of some interest:

The different between continuous laser and pulsed laser deposition is mainly for surface morphology and thickness, then the optical and  electrical properties is can been changed.

Thats a nice question.Actually i'm also searching for this.Generally,we can use pulsed lasers to reduse and increase the size of nano particles by varying the fluence(gold nano we can use Nd-YAG Q switched nano pulsed Laser) by focusing the laser into the nanoparticle colloid --- : Laser ablation method .We can use other pulsed lasers also.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
