Laboratory for Plasma Nanosynthesis at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (LPN-PPPL) combines PPPL expertise in plasma science with the materials science capabilities of Princeton University and other institutions.  LPN-PPPL is conducting collaborative research on the fundamental physics of plasma synthesis of nanomaterials with the goals to understand, predict, and ultimately control the synthesis processes starting from the  plasma generation to nucleation and growth of nanoparticles and nanostructures. The LPN-PPPL research program focuses on the integration of three areas:

Cerion’s core expertise is the development, customization and manufacture of high-performance metal, metal oxide and mixed metal nanoparticles for a wide range of industrial products including (but not limited to) coatings/thin films, catalysts, additives, printed electronics and antimicrobials.

Our team's unique expertise was established during their tenure at Kodak, where they were global leaders in the stable dispersion of metal nanoparticle colloids for photographic film emulsions.

Roll-to-Roll Electrophoretic Deposition of Hybrid Nanomaterials

Presented here is a method for assembling homogenous films of controllable thickness comprised of hybrid nanostructures on a roll-to-roll platform directly from solution. Using surfactant-free mixtures of nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanosheets, and any combination thereof, film fabrication may be achieved that maintains the chemical and physical properties inherit to the constituent material that is not limited by the presence of surfactants or impurities. Using this technique, researchers may demonstrate the viability of scalable production of a synthesized material.

Direct Growth of Aligned Zinc Oxide Nanorods on Paper Substrates

A method for the controlled direct growth of highly crystalline ZnO nanorods on a paper substrate is described. Despite the complexity and surface roughness which paper naturally presents, adequate surface modification enhances ZnO nanorod alignment and uniformity in growth. Large scale synthesis is also demonstrated. Hybrid PN junction diodes, also on paper substrates, show application toward flexible electronics.
