BPN315: Rapid Synthesis of Nanostructures via Induction Heating


The primary objective of this work is to develop a platform technology for the rapid synthesis nanostructured materials using an induction heating system. The technology is clean, scalable, inexpensive and versatile, and may be used to rapidly synthesize a wide range of nanomaterials in a room-temperature environment in as little as 30 seconds. Such a synthesis technology may be used to quickly prototype novel and existing vapor-liquid-solid-grown nanomaterials for sensor applications, and open up a new class of nanomaterial synthesis.
