Synthesis and characterization of nickel nanoparticles by sol-gel processAuthor(s): S.R.Kavitha, M.Umadevi
The Nickel nanoparticleswere synthesized by using sol-gel process at 800ïÂ°C. The structural features, chemical composition and optical properties of the nanoparticleswere investigated byX-RayDiffraction (XRD), X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Ultra Violet spectroscopy (UV) studies. The particle size was calculated by using Debye - ScherrerÂÂs Formula. The existence of fcc structure is confirmed by XRD technique.
