Many materials and devices exploiting size effects occurring below 20 nm are expected to lead to important innovations in the near future. These are emerging in important domains like energy conversion and storage, catalysis, and chemical sensors. For all these applications, the capability of mixing “anything with anything” on the nanoscale or on the atomic scale (e.g. high entropy alloys) constitutes a wealth of new properties tunable by size, composition and structure. Spark ablation offers an unprecedented flexibility regarding composition and size.
The webinar deals with spark ablation as a source of nanoparticulate building blocks smaller than 20 nm in diameter. The principle of spark ablation will be explained and examples of applications of this research instrument and scalable method will be given.

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.

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.
