    Recent progress in laser technologies provokes comprehensive studies on laser-matter interaction using various materials. One of the most interesting and most important employment of lasers is related to synthesis of new nanomaterials with unique properties for a wide set of applications. Interaction between ultrafast laser radiation and bulk / powder materials in different environments provokes efficient substance removal resulting to formation of nanoparticles with properties depending on experimental conditions [1]. Moreover, it has been shown lately that ultrafast laser irradiation significantly modifies semiconductor nanostructures in the presence of metal forming composite nanoparticles [2,3]. Such a modification reveals unique modalities ensuring biomedical applications of nanocomposites, in particular, molecule detection by means of surface-enhanced Raman scattering [4]. Nevertheless, study of laser-synthesized composite nanostructures is at an early stage and information about their properties and applications as well is still missed in literature.

    In this work, different kinds of silicon-based nanostructures have been prepared by pulsed laser ablation synthesis. In order to form nanocomposites, a two-step method has been developed [2,3,5]. Firstly, pure silicon nanoparticles are prepared by laser-induced decomposition of silicon microparticles dispersed in deionized water. Their size distributions are controlled by multiple experimental parameters [1]. The second step - their laser-induced structural modification due to laser-ablation of a gold target immersed in silicon nanoparticle colloidal solution has been carried out.

    In results, composite silicon-gold nanoparticles with strong size-dependent properties are formed. Synthesized nanostructures have been investigated by different structural, optical and electronic methods. Their employment for molecule detection using surface-enhanced Raman scattering ability is studied as well compared to initial silicon nanoparticles [4].
