Abstract:
    Nanoparticles NP<sub>S </sub>of cadmium oxide CdO were generated by laser ablation of a solid target (cadmium) in polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) solution. CdO colloidal nanoparticles have been synthesized by laser ablation Nd:YAG (1064 nm, 100 pulses, pulse energy= 400 mJ) when the solid target CdO was immersed in PVP. Structure, topography and optical properties of the CdO nanoparticles NP<sub>S</sub> have been studied using X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic force microscope (AFM) and the UV-Vis absorption respectively.
