Here we report on laser ablation approach to produce dielectric crystalline nanoparticles Ce:LiYF4 inspired by method for metal nanoparticles fabrication in aqueous solutions. The obtained water solution has shown tangible presence of compound we believe to be agglomerates of Ce:LiYF4 nanocrystals. The obtained powder has shown luminescence with peaks at 310 nm and 325 nm which is characteristic for the scheelite structured fluoride and luminescence decay quenching characteristic for Ce-doped nanoparticles.
