The paper describes the design features of the synthesis of copper nanoparticles by the cathode sputtering method in radio-frequency plasma. The dependence of the size and number of Cu nanoparticles on the plasma power, sputtering time, gas flow and pressure was studied. Optimal parameters for obtaining copper particles with an extended fractal structure were determined.
