#245 - Nanoparticle Synthesis and Stabilization (01C02)
Nanoparticles provide new opportunities in electronics, ceramics, the environment, optics, and other fields, due to new physics available when the particle size drops below some critical length scale. Various methods exist for synthesizing these particles, and two important challenges to producing bulk quantities of particles are synthesizing large mass quantities and keeping the particles stable. This session focuses on these two goals. Papers are sought that describe novel methods for synthesizing particles of various types, passivating or stabilizing particles that have been formed, controlling interparticle forces to reduce aggregation, and similar topics.
