VSP-G1 nanoparticle generator

Generate and combine your own nanoparticles

The VSP-G1 nanoparticle generator provides you with the possibility to perform groundbreaking research within the field of nanomaterials without the limitations of common generation methods and materials. It allows you to move through the research cycle quickly, fast forwarding from hypothesis to success! Are you ready to break down the last barriers in aerosol and material science?

Material versatility

The VSP-G1 uses two electrodes as base material to generate sub 20 nm particles. Below 20 nm, quantum effects of nanoparticles can be used for all kinds of applications.  All solid (semi)conductive materials that can be processed into electrodes can be used in this device. This allows for the creation of particles of bi-metals, nano-alloys or materials that are immiscible in bulk state.

Intuitive user experience

Minimize setup time

Generate nanoparticles with the push of a button. Our best-in-class customer experience is intuitive for scientist and students, and allows for quick iterations to speed up research. Spark energy and frequency can be controlled on the device, gas flow can be controlled with flow-controllers of other vendors. Setup time is minimized and settings can be logged via RS232 port on the back. 

Easier, faster and reproducible production of nanoparticles

The current methods to generate nanoparticles are complex, which makes them time consuming and limited to just a few materials. With the VSP-G1 researchers can bring back months of work to just a matter of hours or days:

Easy: The VSP-G1 is controlled by just three buttons. The first one serves as on/off switch and emergency stop, while the other two are used to alter the particle size and production rate. The VSP-G1 is operated at room temperature and standard pressure. 

Fast: the VSP-G1 offers effortless interchangeability of electrode material. 

Reproducible: once you have the ideal settings defined, there is nothing that stops you from reproducing it with the VSP-G1. 

Very small particles
Output distribution of particles between 0-20 nm
Making large particles at high concentrations is easy, but making very small particles at high concentrations is one of the most challenging tasks in aerosol research and material science. VSP-G1 delivers high output of very small particles, starting from atom clusters of a few atoms.

Ultra-stable and reliable aerosol output

Stability of 98% in long term experiments 
State-of-the art experiments in aerosol research and material science demand a very stable and highly reproducible output of sub 20 nm particles. The VSP-G1 has a highly reliable production output, with an average stability up top 98%. This will help to speed up your research and gain reproducible results over long term experiments.

No chemicals needed
The spark ablation process used in the 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 stabilize the particles in the aerosol. The produced nanoparticles can be directly incorporated into the next process step or applied in a product by, for example, impaction, electrostatic precipitation or filtering.

This way the unique physical properties of the nanoparticles are directly available in the product. The carrier gas can simply be recycled by passing it through a filter and used again, minimizing the environmental impact of the process.

In your own lab or with our support
The VSP-G1 has bench-top dimensions and  is designed to fit most lab-tables and fume hoods. If you wish to set it up in your own lab, you can opt for either buying or leasing the nanoparticle generator. It is also possible to work in our lab or let vsparticle provide you with some test samples.
