Building Blocks for Nanotechnology from Spark Ablation

MAR 11 , 2021

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.

High Throughput Electrocatalysis Testing

FEB 18 , 2020   

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.

ENHANSERS – Cutting edge SERS substrates for quick and clear molecular analysis

DEC  10 , 2020   

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.

Producing nanoaerosols by spark ablation using the VSP-G1 Nanoparticle Generator 

DEC  01 , 2020   

Through our webinar we aim to  provide insight into how the VSP-G1 Nanoparticle Generator can be used to generate model aerosols on demand. While the focus lies on airborne exposure, the same processes and principles can be applied in nanomaterial manufacturing for other applications.
