We report the formation of highly oriented, uniform, and spherical nanoparticles of 3C–SiC as a result of Coulomb explosion during the interaction of near-infrared ultrafast laser pulses with 3C–SiC thin films grown on Si substrate. Experiments were performed at laser fluences well below the single shot, thermal modification threshold. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
