Nanoparticle generator lab

Nanoparticle from the gas phase Nanoparticle generator

  • nanoparticles produced directly from the gas-phase without any chemical processing
  • plasma is generated by sputtering which condenses into primary particles in a liquid nitrogen cooled chamber (right)
  • particles are carried through a sintering furnace (middle) where the particles can be thermally processed before landing on a substrate in the deposition chamber (left)
  • nanoparticles of any material for which a sputter-target is available can be generated in quantities suitable for electron microscopy, transport, and magnetic property studies
