PREPARATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CDO-NIO NANOCOMPOSITES USING LASER PULSE DEPOSITION APPROACH

In this manuscript, CdO-NiO nanocomposites (in the form of thin film) with particular concentrations are paper using laser pulse deposition technique under the effect of different laser energies (300, 400, 500, and 600 mJ). Furthermore, the structural, morphological, and optical analyses are thoroughly investigated. In particular, well-oriented deposited films are observed by using X-ray diffraction technique, while the morphological properties are investigated using two different techniques namely field emission scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy which have revealed small nanoparticles with approximate diameter of 50 nm and average surface roughness ranging between 6.5 and 20.3 nm for laser energies of 400 and 600 mJ, respectively. Continuously, the optical technique applied which used UV-Vis analysis has showed cut-off phenomenon at around 339 nm. In the meanwhile, the energy band gap for the deposited films was found to be within the range of 2.2 and 2.4 eV, as a result of different laser energies.
