Abstract

Gas‐phase synthesis of clusters and ultrafine particles using lasers and organometallics is reviewed. The general field of laser chemistry is introduced in the context of using organometallics as reactants. Examples of particle and cluster synthesis in flowing gases and in bulk gases, and during laser chemical vapor deposition, are given. A brief introduction to the general field of random irreversible fractal coagulation provides a basis for describing how powders, clusters and ultrafine particles are synthesized. References to applications and characterization methods are given.
