A rapid, photochemical solution-phase synthesis has been developed for the production of monodisperse, nanometer-sized silver particles. The stabilizer used in the synthesis can be used to control the average diameter of the particles over a range from 1 to 7 nm. The same reaction mixture can also be employed to deposit patterns of nanoparticles with a laser via multiphoton absorption. The particles exhibit strong multiphoton absorption-induced luminescence when irradiated with 800-nm light, allowing emission from single nanoparticles to be observed readily.
