Tools to rapidly advance the field of nanotechnology

Nanoparticles are key in the development of new materials for innovative applications such as catalysis, microelectronics and sensors. While many researchers study nanoparticles and their physical properties, for most, making the desired nanoparticle is a complex and time consuming process. To accelerate the development of devices based on nanoparticles VSPARTICLE delivers user-friendly tools which can produce any inorganic nanoparticle.

At the push of a button

Speeding up research is key in developing new applications. We believe that by offering tools to do this, we can enable researchers and industry to innovate. 

That’s why we developed the VSP-G1 nanoparticle generator, offering you - irrespective of the field you are working in - easier, faster and reproducible production of nanoparticles of a few atoms to 20 nm for any (semi-)conductive material.

More and more scientists are exploring the possibilities of nanoparticles to create novel materials supporting the shift from a fossil fuel based economy towards a sustainable and carbon neutral one. Unfortunately this process is slowed down because people are struggling with the first step: getting the right building blocks. 

Dr Michelle Moram of Imperial College London explains what might be possible with the development of a periodic hyper table - and asks us to imagine what materials we could design, with exactly the properties we desire.
