Formation of carbon nanoclusters in a laser-pulse created plume expanding in vacuum and in a noble gas environment at various pressures was studied. Experiments were performed with carbon nanoclusters formed by laser ablation of graphite targets with 12-picosecond 532 nm laser pulses at MHz-range repetition rate in a broad range of ambient He, Ar, Kr, and Xe gas pressures from 2 × 10-2 Torr to 1500 Torr. The experimental results confirmed our theoretical prediction that the average size of the...[Show more]
