Nanoparticles by Design
An animation showing a new nanoparticle deposition system in OIST's Nanoparticles by Design for Nanotechnology and Biomedical Applications Unit. Atoms of up to three different materials can be sputtered from the source simultaneously to form nanoclusters in the gas aggregation zone. The newly-formed nanoclusters then pass through a mass filter that selects those in a certain size range. Finally, the nanoclusters can either be deposited on a solid surface or harvested for applications such as novel cancer therapies, drug delivery systems, infrared detectors, and sensors.
