Paper Abstract

A study of optically induced Zn/ZnO nanoparticles selective deposition using a coherent light source on single-mode fiber optic end is presented. In the numerical studies, Zn/ZnO spherical nanoparticles are considered dissolved in isopropyl alcohol with different diameters under the influence of a Gaussian beam with fundamental mode and linear polarization. The results of this study show that the gradient force is not sufficient to move Zn nanoparticles toward optical fiber end face, but it is sufficient to move ZnO nanoparticles of a certain diameter. In the experimental studies, Zn/ZnO nanoparticles were mixed with isopropyl alcohol and subsequently deposited on the fiber end face using an infrared laser. The results obtained by atomic force and optical microscopy show a good uniform distribution of nanostructures deposited on the core of the fiber end face.
