New developments in material research are expanding our ability to create new advanced materials. Advanced materials that are needed in solving some of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. Empowering researchers in fields such as Catalysis, Semiconductors and Healthcare is essential if we are to solve some of these challenges.
Nano structured materials have proved to be the ideal building blocks to enable next generation batteries, sensors, fuel cells and industrial catalysts. And that’s because when you go from macro to Nano, or from bulk size materials to atom size materials, properties change.

Using the prototype of the VSP-P1 NanoPrinter, Joost van Ginkel developed a method to direct-write conducting gold tracks on the top and sides of dies. It can thus provide an alternative method for creating interconnects or vias on soft materials, temperature sensitive materials, irregularly shaped materials, or curved surfaces.

Together with Avantium, VSPARTICLE, prepared and screened 64 different Ni-Fe electrocatalysts in high throughput using the VSP-P1 Nanostructured Material Printer (VSP-P1). These electrocatalysts were employed in the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) using a high-throughput electrochemical cell.

VSPARTICLE has developed a nanoparticle printing technology to produce nanostructured noble metal layers by depositing nanoparticles produced by spark-discharge. The sensing capabilities of the printed nanoparticles and the nano-porous morphology of the printed layers have proven to be very effective for developing SERS substrates that can be used as a standard tool for chemical analysis. This has led to the development of ENHANSERS, a nanotechnology company solely focussed on the production and distribution of nanostructured SERS substrates on a commercial scale.

The webinar ‘A paradigm shift in electrocatalyst synthesis’, presented by our Application Specialist dr.ir. Wilbert Vrijburg will showcase the flexibility of our technology and how its adoption can simplify the preparation of model electrocatalysts and accelerate the discovery novel electrocatalyst compositions.

VSPARTICLE goes beyond the current standard in research and introduces a fully automated system that can not only generate the desired nanoparticles but can also print them directly into a new product or integrate the nanoparticles as additional features into a desired product. The VSP-P1 Nanostructured Material Printer enables you to print inorganic nanostructured materials with novel properties.

Producing the desired nanoparticles becomes now as easy as pushing a button.
The three VSP-A deposition accessories can be easily connected to the output of the VSP-G1, enabling any researcher to produce nanoparticle samples in a matter of hours, with minimal effort.
Going from hypothesis to results in the same day is now a possibility.
