The VSP-P1 Nanostructured Materials Printer

locally print nanostructured materials

Coming soon! In 2019 the VSP-P1 is available through Contract Research. In 2020 we will be running a BETA program.

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.

Material versatility

You can print all (semi)conductive materials. This allows for the creation of particles of bimetallic particles, nano-alloys or materials that are immiscible in bulk state. Also non-metallic compounds can be made such as oxides and hydrides, by mixing small quantities of a non-inert gas in the carrier gas.

What you can make with VSP-G1 & VSP-P1

NO HANDLING OF NANOPARTICLES

The NMP1 combines the generation, selection and deposition of nanoparticles in one automated process allowing the customer to print new materials without handling nanoparticles. The system is controlled via a secure web interface and can run automatically.

 

BENEFITS OF ADDITIVE MANUFACTORING

The possibility to locally deposit the material in an additive way greatly simplifies the manufacturing of, for instance, atmospheric sensors. By eliminating post-processing steps the porous nanostructure is preserved. The high surface to volume ratio of the nanoparticles in the nanoporous layer make the sensor highly sensitive and selective.


LEE-BED

From January 2019 VSParticle is participating in the Horizon 2020 project: Innovation test bed for development and production of nanomaterials for lightweight embedded electronics (LEE BED). Within this project we will further develop the NMP to be more suitable for printed electronics.
