Pulsed laser ablation in liquid is a well-known and effective method which can be used to prepare the various nanostructures. However, ablated samples have various problems such as wide size distribution, and effect of solvent to sample during laser ablation in liquid has not been well understood. In response to these problems, in this study, we prepared nanoparticles by irradiating nanosecond laser to samples using different solvents. The experimental results of prepared samples were compared, and we evaluated how the different solvents affect to their morphological and optical properties. The morphology, crystal structures and optical properties of the MoS2 nanoparticle were characterized by Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy. Upon the laser ablation of the samples, the absorbance of UV-Vis spectra increased as approaching the shorter wavelength side. From the SEM images, it confirmed that the particle size became smaller for laser ablated MoS2 sample, which is good agreement with the result of UV-Vis spectra. The XRD spectra shows the appearance of new peak for laser ablated MoS2 in methanol as compared to those samples ablated in ethanol and N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone. It can be said that the crystal structure of the sample has changed after ablation. It suggested that because the particle size became smaller after ablation and the band gap increased. Such MoS2 nanostructure has its own importance for optoelectronics devices.
