Abstract:

The extended project dealt with the characterization of magnetic nano-colloids prepared by wet chemical process using FTIR absorption spectroscopy FTIR indicated that the nano-particles were more likely made of Fe3O4. New method and apparatus was developed for laser spark milling of magnetic micro-powders into nano-powders Two compounds were tested Fe2O3TiO2MgO water and MnAs in wateralcohol In both cases nano-colloids were made out of micro-powder suspensions. Provisional patent application has been submitted to USPTO for the method and apparatus.
