Ni/NiO nanoparticles have been prepared by nanosecond laser irradiance. The nanoparticles formation is attributed absorption of the laser at impurities or defects site within the nickel microcrystal inducing thermoelastic stress that mechanically fractures microparticles into smaller nanoparticles. The particle size ranges from 20 to 45 nm with different shapes of the particles: spherical, and spiral like structures. The high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) shows polycrystalline cores (Ni) with predominantly amorphous shells (NiO) of spiral like structure. The saturation magnetization (M-s), remanent magnetization (M-r) and coercivity (H-c) determined to be 33.4 emu/g, 1.94 emu/g and 46.4 Oe respectively for these nanoparticles. Zero-field-cooling (ZFC) and field cooling (FC) magnetization measurements were performed using a vibrating sample magnetometer from 90 to 300 K. The Curie temperature of nickel nanoparticles was found to be 395 degrees C.
