In many fields, the special properties of nanoparticles, which come into play especially for sizes <20 nm, are just beginning to be exploited. The present book deals with spark ablation as a unique source of such building blocks for nanotechnology and a powerful tool to promote this development. The technique offers unprecedented flexibility regarding composition and size, and revolutions in the domains of catalysis, sensor technology, and more are to be expected.

The authors of this book all have many years of experience in spark ablation and its applications. The introductory chapters give an overview of the technological fields that can exploit these size effects, and explain the process of spark ablation in the gas phase, as well as principles of immobilizing the particles to create novel products and materials. Fundamentals of the spark ablation process are then treated, as well as the characteristics of the particles formed. The rest of the book deals with a selection of application fields that profit from the spark ablation source from the perspective of research.
