Riassunto:  Ultra small silicon nanoparticles (Si-NPs) with narrow size distribution are prepared in a one step process by UV picosecond laser ablation of silicon bulk in liquid. Characterization by electron microscopy and absorption spectroscopy proves Si-NPs generation with an average size of 2 nm resulting from an in situ photofragmentation effect. In this context, the current work aims to explore the liquid medium (water and toluene) effect on the Si-NPs structure and on the optical properties of the colloidal solution. Si-NPs with high pressure structure (s.g. Fm3m) and diamond-like structure (s.g. Fd3m), in water, and SiC moissanite 3C phase (s.g. F (4) over bar 3m) in toluene are revealed by the means of High-Resolution TEM and HAADF-STEM measurements. Optical investigations show that water-synthesized Si-NPs have blue-green photoluminescence emission characterized by signal modulation at a frequency of 673 cm-1 related to electron-phonon coupling. The synthesis in toluene leads to generation of Si-NPs embedded in the graphitic carbon-polymer composite which has intrinsic optical properties at the origin of the optical absorption and luminescence of the obtained colloidal solution.
