This article is from Nanoscale Research Letters, volume 9.AbstractWe here report a simple and efficient method to grow single-layer bismuth nanoparticles BiNPs with various sizes on glass substrates. Optimal conditions were found to be 200°C and 0.12 W-cm2 at a growth rate of 6 Å-s, with the deposition time around 40 s. Scanning electron microscope SEM images were used to calculate the particle size distribution statistics, and high-resolution X-ray diffraction XRD patterns were used to examine the chemical interactions between BiNPs and the substrates. By measuring the transmission spectra within the range of 300 to 1,000 nm, we found that the optical bandgap can be modulated from 0.45 to 2.63 eV by controlling the size of these BiNPs. These interesting discoveries offer an insight to explore the dynamic nature of nanoparticles.
