Nanoparticles are ultrafine units used in many different fields, from the biomedical sector and pharmaceutics to energy storage technologies. Due to their size, they are difficult to track and measure, but it’s essential to know their properties so they can be designed to fulfill their purpose. Different measurement technologies can be used to produce and characterize nanoparticles, such as microwave synthesis, atomic force microscopy, dynamic light scattering, SAXS, laser diffraction and many more.

2D materials

Single-layer materials are the focus of research for very versatile applications including nano-sized strain gauges, nanocrystalline TiO2 coatings for body implants, and the influence of atomic step terraces on growth phenomena, or e.g. the study of 2D material crystallinity of the anode or cathode component for faster and more efficient energy transfer in batteries. Various measurement solutions and different technologies from Anton Paar play an important role in the characterization of 2D materials such as temperature-controlled grazing incidence, small-angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS), atomic force microscopy (AFM), surface zeta potential, or gas pycnometry.

Quantum dots

Any successful implementation of quantum structures, motivated by their electronic and optical properties – which differ from those of larger particles – relies on controlled fabrication of quantum dots as well as a thorough understanding of their physical properties. Technologies from Anton Paar are used for quantum dots research: microwave irradiation for synthesis of uniform nanoparticles with narrow size distribution; atomic force microscopy (AFM) for characterization of self-assembled indium arsenide quantum dots.

Nanowires, nanofibers, nanorods

Nanowires have properties that can’t usually be found in bulk materials due to their energy levels. They are therefore promising for the preparation of sensors or flexible transparent electrodes, but are also used for numerous other electronic applications. Additionally, nanowires, nanofibers, and nanorods are important for biomedical applications, where they are used to modify surfaces in order to provide better interaction with biological cells/tissues. Analyze nanowires, nanofibers, and nanorods with Anton Paar’s microwave synthesis and atomic force microscopy instruments.

Carbon nanotubes and biological nanomaterials

Divided into single-wall and multi-wall carbon nanotubes, carbon nanotubes show notable electrical and thermal conductivity, as well as tensile strength. They can be found in many material science applications, especially in the fields of electronics, optics, and composite materials. Microwave synthesis and SAXS are two important methods for research in this field. When talking about biological nanomaterials, we typically think of nanoparticles, but other kinds of nanomaterials have also proved very useful for applications like drug delivery, regenerative medicine and many more.
