The process of printing and laser curing of nanoparticle solutions was studied. A liquid solvent was used as a carrier of gold naoparticles possessing a low-melting temperature compared to that of bulk gold. An optical method for estimating the curing times was also developed and discussed. The interaction between the laser radiation and nanoparticles drives the solvent evaporation and controls the quality of the microstructures printing process.
