Laboratory for Plasma Nanosynthesis at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (LPN-PPPL) combines PPPL expertise in plasma science with the materials science capabilities of Princeton University and other institutions. LPN-PPPL is conducting collaborative research on the fundamental physics of plasma synthesis of nanomaterials with the goals to understand, predict, and ultimately control the synthesis processes starting from the plasma generation to nucleation and growth of nanoparticles and nanostructures. The LPN-PPPL research program focuses on the integration of three areas:
Nanomanufacturing Characterization Techniques
- Charge Transport Characterization
- Diffraction and Scattering
- Electrochemical Characterization
- Magnetic Characterization
- Mechanical Property Characterization
- Optical Spectroscopy
- Other Characterization Techniques
- Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
- Scanning Probe Microscopy
- Thermal Analysis
- Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
The Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) explores the unique properties of materials and processes at the nanoscale. The CFN is a user-oriented research center whose mission is to be an open facility for the nanoscience research community and advance the science of nanomaterials that address the nation's energy challenges.
XiGo Nanotools was founded by Sean Race and Dr. David Fairhurst in 2005 with the mission to provide new innovative “tools” for the emerging nanomaterials industry. The Acorn Area is designed to analyze the wetted surface area of concentrated dispersions with little or no sample preparation, providing a viable complementary technique to BET surface area, analyzing nanoparticles as they are made or used, dispersed in liquids. Our goal is to provide scientists, researchers, and corporations with tools that are easy to use and serve as wide and diverse a customer base as possible.
Malvern Instruments is a leading supplier of analytical solutions for particle characterization and rheology applications. Our products help our customers improve product quality, performance, increase productivity and yield.
The Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) is a research institute of the Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC) under Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The Institute has capabilities in materials analysis & characterisation, design & growth, patterning & fabrication, and synthesis & integration. We house a range of state-of-the-art equipment for materials research including development, processing and characterisation.
