Cadmium hydroxide/oxide nanocomposite material is synthesized by pulsed laser ablation of cadmium metal in double distilled water. As-synthesized cadmium hydroxide/oxide particles transforms into pure oxide after annealing at 350 °C for 9 h. As-obtained particles are spherical in shape with 15 nm average diameter, while spherical as well as rod shaped nanostructures are formed after annealing. PL spectrum of annealed powder has peaks corresponding to the defect levels rather than the band gap transitions.
