Nanomaterials Analysis

Big discoveries from tiny particles

Nanomaterials are defined as materials with at least one dimension measuring 100 nanometers or less. Accommodating for this small size, Raman spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) are powerful tools for nanomaterial analysis, both of which can probe layers of inorganic and organic materials. While Raman is useful in characterizing spatial distribution and phase homogeneity of materials, XPS is a major technique for thin and ultra-thin film analysis and can characterize monolayer coatings of nanoparticles.

Twin-screw extruders are a third tool for analyzing nanomaterials, being well-established for mixing, compounding and processing viscous materials. From webinars to application notes and videos, learn about all three of these methods to see how we analyze nanomaterials for different applications.
