We investigate molecular beam methods for gold nanoparticles. They are based on electrospray, matrix assisted laser desorption and thermal laser desorption in combination with mass spectroscopy and multi-photon ionization. These techniques are analyzed with respect to their potential for coherent matter wave experiments.
