Nanoparticle Deposition Accessories

Nanoparticle deposition can be realised with diffusion, impaction or filtration accessories offered by VSPARTICLES.

Diffusion

The diffusion accessory allows the homogeneous deposition of 0-10 nm particles via Brownian diffusion on TEM grids, in-situ TEM chips, various additional MEMS chips and SiOx surfaces. The surface area is a maximum of 1 cm2 with a surface coverage of 0-10%, conditional on sample preparation time, usually 5-15 minutes.

Feature Highlights

  • Works with: TEM grids, in-situ TEM/MEMS, SiOx
  • Uses in: In-situ TEM catalyst research, materials science, ...
  • Materials: Metals, Oxides, Alloys, Semiconductors, Carbon
  • Maximum sample size: 1 cm2

Impaction

The impaction accessory allows for the deposition of nanostructured materials onto TEM grids, in-situ TEM chips, various other MEMS chips and SiOx surfaces. The functionalized surface area is approximately 1 mm2. Preparation time for a representative sample is between 1 and 5 minutes.

Feature Highlights

  • Can be used with: TEM grids, in-situ TEM/MEMS, SiOx
  • Uses: catalysis, in-situ TEM, sensors, batteries
  • Materials: Metals, Oxides, Alloys, Semiconductors, Carbon*
  • Maximum functionalized surface area of around 1 mm2

Filtration

The filtration accessory gives the opportunity to deposit the slightest of particles and particle agglomerates on filter membranes, for the growth of active surfaces e.g. to apprehend particles produced by the G1 (mg/h) in a membrane filter or adorn a carbon mesh support with 0-10 nm catalyst particles. The maximum filter diameter is 47 mm.

Feature Highlights

  • Works with: Filters, active carbon membranes, nanospun wires
  • Applications: catalysis, batteries, filter testing
  • Materials: Metals, Oxides, Alloys, Semiconductors, Carbon
