A globally unique pilot reactor for the manufacture of metallic
nanoparticles, together with the most advanced scanning electron microscope
available, will be inaugurated at VTT. The novel nanoparticle reactor offers
exceptionally cost-effective process that can also be used for the synthesis
of new functional multicomponent nanoparticles. The new SEM device reproduces
a projection of nanostructures to an unequalled accuracy.
Nanoparticles are commercially available for multiple end uses. The poor
scalability of current methods, however, means that the price remains high,
especially for metallic nanoparticles. VTT has developed a feasibly scalable
process based on gas phase synthesis and coating. The process is suited for
mass production and enables flexible tailoring of metallic nanoparticles. The
nanoparticles have endless applications, from printable electronics to water
purification, or even magnetic cell separation in bioprocesses.
Welcome and opening, Tuomas Mustonen, Vice President
