Laser ablation (LAL) and irradiation in liquids (LIL) are becoming two of the most studied and dominant ways of synthesis and modification for nanostructured materials. Such rapid development is due to a fast and economic way to obtain nanoparticles of any material. Starting from solid targets submerged in water or other liquids, it is possible to obtain noble metals, metal alloys, metal oxides, and graphene nanoparticles, simply by irradiating the target with a focused laser beam. Moreover, it is also possible to modify already existing nanoparticles, generating defects in their structures or reshaping them, through laser irradiation of their colloidal dispersion using an unfocused laser beam. In this chapter, a focus on the fundaments of laser ablation and modification in liquids is reported as well as some advances in the synthesis and modification of new nanostructures with their relative application in different …
