German Pavilion at nano tech in Tokyo With New Nanoparticle Supplier: Particular GmbH
(Nanowerk News) From February 16th to 18th, the world's largest nanotechnology exhibition
will take place in Tokyo, Japan. One of the highlights of nano tech 2011
is the "German Pavilion" presenting nanotechnology expertise from
Germany in a separate exhibition area.
Particular GmbH is joining the German Pavilion for the first time. It
enriches the technology show by a physical nanoparticle generation
process and is the first company to present nanoparticles in liquids that
have been produced by a physical laser ablation process.
These nanoparticles are highly pure and are available from all kinds of
metals, alloys, or ceramics, dispersed in water, acetone, and other
solvents. The purity, variety and flexibility predestine the products for
quick nanotechnological research and development results. The colloids
can also be produced in larger quantities. On the show, Particular will
present nanoparticle dispersions from gold, silver, platinum, and titanium.
Particular is a nanotech company from Hannover, Germany, and started
their business as a nanomaterial supplier in July 2010. The start-up is
the first company to employ laser ablation in liquids for the production
of nanoparticles. The particles are pure and charged, and their liquid
dispersion media ensure a high quality and good and secure
