Nanocrystalline powders of 2H-MoS2 and 2H-WS2 with average particle size 5 and 9 nm, respectively, have been produced using C0 2 laser pyrolysis. Typical production rate for these nanoparticles is 2g/hr. Particle size, crystallite size, and the structural phase were determined using X-ray diffraction(XRD), transmission electron microscopy(TEM), and Raman scattering. Particle size effects may have been observed in the Raman-active modes (WS2 and MoS2) and in the band-edge excitons (MoS 2).
