This project will develop an analyzer for size and charge measurement of nanoparticles. The existing E-SPART analyzer measures the size and charge of particles between 1 and 30 ĂŽÂĽm. The proposed instrument will significantly advance the capabilities of the current E-SPART for its application to nanoscale materials with a goal to cover a range of 10 to 1000 nm in diameter.
Current Undergraduate Involvement:
The undergraduate researcher is mainly working on the development of the laser optical and signal detecting system of the instrument.
