  4. VSP P1 Nanostructured Material Printer – the ultimate tool for material development

    When connected to the output of the VSP-G1, the VSP-P1 enables you to print inorganic nanostructured materials with novel properties. The material is built-up of sub 20nm pure particles, and can be printed in patterns locally on any type of substrate. The ability to locally deposit nanoporous thin films with a high surface-to-volume ratio in an additive manner greatly simplifies the manufacturing...

  5. Generating and Depositing nanoparticles with a push of a button

    Spark ablation technology is a physics-based process, generating pure particles in a very controlled setting, without the use of chemicals. The spark ablation process used inside the VSP-G1 Nanoparticle Generator (VSP-G1) is a purely physical process that only requires electricity, a carrier gas and electrode material to produce clean nanoparticles. No additional chemicals are required for the production or to...

  7. Colour capabilities of the Zygo Nexview for corrosion investigation

    Researchers at Imperial College and Rolls-Royce have investigated the nature of blue corrosion areas in Ti alloys used in aerospace applications. After extensive investigation using Light Optical Microscopy (LOM) and Secondary Electron Imaging (SEI) they were able to identify the same blue area with both techniques. The LOM shows the area well but gives no surface topography, whereas because the...
