Laser ablation in liquids by femtosecond radiation has been used to generate gold nanoparticles in a heat transfer fluid to produce a high stable thermal nanofluid as a heat transfer intensification technique. In oil based fluids, no matter the actual fabrication route, nanoparticles tend to agglomerate. Here, we report a new form to control its stability through the addition of a surfactant that does not degrade at high temperatures. It allow us to produce gold nanoparticles of 58±31 nm in the liquid in situ, avoiding in this way the generation of pollution and reducing the maximum point of nanoparticle agglomeration at 370 nm. The developing of this new nanofluid represents a great opportunity for the harvesting of solar energy industry.
