Abstract

Nanophase Ni particles (10 nm in diameter) were produced by a blown arc method. A helium gas stream directed at the arc reduces the Ni vapor concentration and increases the quench rate. The helium gas velocity is the predominant factor influencing the size of the Ni particles. Gas velocities of 20 m/s and 56 m/s (at 26.6 kPa total helium pressure) resulted in Ni particle sizes of 13 nm and 7 nm, respectively.
