Abstract:

Not Available There have been number of new technologies have been developed over the past decade to produce metallic and ceramic nanopowders, the market for which is growing rapidiv. However, much needed user-friendly characterization techniques for this new class of materials have not been developed. Traditional methods, used for submicron powders are not always suitable for nanomaterials, because of inherent limitations. In this program we propose to develop and deliver a generic and user-friendly bench-top Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) system, with proprietary data analysis software designed specifically for nanomaterials. SAXS can yield accurate information on particle characteristics, such as size, size distribution. Morphology, thickness of surface layer, extent of agglomeration, and surface area. In addition, sintered materials can also be characterized. The ultimate objective is that the instrument be used by an individual who is not a trained scatterer. Sample nanopowders of metals and ceramics will be characterized by SAXS in Phase I, and the instrument will be packaged in Phase II of else program. The instrument will be sold on a commercial basis in Phase III of the program. BENEFITS: Instruments needed to characterize nanopowders on a routine basis, have not kept pace with the development in nanoparticle production technologies. The instrument that we propose to develop in this program is designed to address this issue. If successful, every nanopowder production
