Nanoparticle Deposition Accessories

Easy and quick nanoparticle sample preparation

The three VSP-A deposition accessories can be easily connected to the output of the VSP-G1 nanoparticle generator, enabling any researcher to produce nanoparticle samples in a matter of hours, with minimal effort. Typical sample preparation time is 1-60 minutes. Go from hypothesis to result in the same day.

Immobilizing the particles

The nanoparticle generator VSP-G1, outputs a clean gas stream filled with pure nanoparticles, ideal for aerosol and toxicity related research. Combining the VSP-G1 with one of the accessories enables you to get the particles out of the gas and onto your substrate for material research.

The VSParticle Features:

  • Safe-by-design: closed, modular system that can be unmounted and easily and safely cleaned in a fume hood
  • No chemicals needed: based on spark ablation, the process is purly physical and requires only electricity, a carrier gas and electrode material
